If you’re sick and tired of supposedly trendy business lingo, nonsensical buzzwords and ludicrous office jargon, you’re not alone! Like the team at Incendo, you’re probably ready to play our updated game of Buzzword Bingo (a.k.a. Bullsh*t Bingo).
Remember the 1990s, when employees were encouraged to push the envelope, hit the ground running, pick the low-hanging fruit and engage in blue sky thinking? Although nobody uses these phrases any more (unless they’re being ironic), they’ve just been replaced by a new set of lingo which seems to run in roughly annual cycles. So, Justin has produced an updated Buzzword Bingo sheet containing some of the corporate jargon we’ve been hearing at assorted client sites.
The game features a bingo sheet contains 12 different ridiculous management buzzwords. Clients tell us that it’s the perfect way to help pass the time during boring meetings (not meetings with Incendo, of course). How to play: Tick any square when you hear that buzzword or phrase during a meeting. When you get a fully ticked row – either horizontally or vertically – stand up and shout “Bullsh*t” as loudly as you can.*
