Coming soon – the latest from Jason Bourne

Robert Ludlum’s (TM) The Bourne Imperative

ISBN 978-0446564472

Published June 5 2012

Jason Bourne is back, practically looking in the mirror in this new novel in Robert Ludlum’s bestselling series written by New York Times bestselling author Eric Van Lustbader. The man Jason Bourne fishes out of the frozen lake is near death, bleeding profusely from a gunshot wound and drowning. He awakens as an amnesiac, with no memory of who he is or why he was shot–and Bourne is eerily reminded of his own past.

The Most Annoying, Pretentious and Useless Business Jargon


The next time you feel the need to reach out, touch base, shift a paradigm, leverage a best practice or join a tiger team, by all means do it. Just don’t say you’re doing it.

If you have to ask why, chances are you’ve fallen under the poisonous spell of business jargon. No longer solely the province of consultants, investors and business-school types, this annoying gobbledygook has mesmerized the rank and file around the globe.

“Jargon masks real meaning,” says Jennifer Chatman, management professor at the University of California-Berkeley’s Haas School of Business. “People use it as a substitute for thinking hard and clearly about their goals and the direction that they want to give others.”

To save you from yourself (and to keep your colleagues and customers from strangling you), we have assembled a cache of expressions to assiduously avoid.
