Paradigm.   Bingo!Theres an underground game undermining business and productivity in offices and boardrooms across America: Buzzword Bingo. How do you play? Make a bingo card, but instead of numbers use corporate-speak, those vague, euphemistic words like the suit at the head of the table is spouting--80:20, incent, empower. When one is spoken, mark it off- when you have five in a row, clear your throat and let others know youve won. Born in the Silicon Valley, the Buzzword Bingo phenomenon has spread globally. Graduating MIT seniors played it during Al Gores commencement address. British Labour delegates play it while listening to Prime Minister Tony Blair.Now this sneaky little pastime goes public in this snarky how-to humor book. The Buzzword Bingo Book is a complete guide to the game, providing an overview of strategies and rules, an explanation of why managers insist on using buzzwords (Its like sniffing glue--they just cant help themselves), nearly 500 definitions of buzzy terms (such as 404, Siliwood, and fungible), and 50 ready-to-use bingo cards, to be copied or torn out on the spot. The Buzzword Bingo Book will help you leverage your content to make this game an action item for your next meeting.Visit the website at www.buzzwordbingo.com
