Speech in recession back to basics?

A new survey reveals the most annoying jargon:
1. Thinking outside the box (21 percent)
2. Let's touch base (20)
3. Blue sky thinking (19)
4. Blamestorming (16) (sitting down and working out whose fault something is)
5. Drill down to a more granular level (15) (Look into something in more detail)
6. Let's not throw pies in the dark (15) (we need a plan rather than a haphazard approach)
7. I've got that on my radar (13)
8. Push the envelope (12)
9. Bring your A-game (11) (Be ready to do something to best of ability)
10. Get all your ducks in a row (11)

In this totally new era, why not go all the way and distil a deal down to 'cost' and 'value' to optimise joint profitability?

Have a concentrated and 'essentials' weekend, from the Namnews Team!
