Buzzword Management ABCs

A bit of Friday fun … I was at a trade show a few weeks ago, and noticed a repeating pattern on many slides. I’ve heard this in vendor pitches and internal presentations as well – every piece of software and/or process must be for the management of something. So, as I sat trapped in a droning presentation, waiting for the “vendor
showcase
” to begin (free dinner!), I wondered how difficult it would be to hit every letter in the alphabet with some type of management offering. No made-up concepts here – must identify an instance of it’s use “in the wild”.

Not as easy, but not as difficult as one might think – about 45 minutes of googling and my list was complete. I got most of these from ITIL and SAP, with a little bit of SCOR in there for good measure. Nailed 18 of 26 in about 10 minutes of work, but some were surprisingly difficult, especially X – 20+ minutes for that
one. In the end – a nice set of possibilities for your next Buzzword Bingo session …
