MSpeak–understanding structure

Reflections on Management Speak ala Mini Me.

If management can understand the fundamental structure of a problem (e.g. water pressure through pipes is low) then obviously there is an easy solution and they need to know why the rest of us don’t understand and address the problem:

We are either

  • Lazy
  • Incompetent, or
  • a combination of both

This premise obviously ignores the probability that the details have been ‘watered’ down, dumbed down, so that management might grasp part of the situation.
