The business world has become overrun with buzzwords. Which means, of course, you should know what they mean — and whether or not you should use them — to navigate the business world. So we’ve started the Work + Money Business Buzzword Tracker, a living glossary that highlights commonly used words, offers some context and definitions, and reveals whether your most-hated jargon is trending up or on its way out.
We’re kicking this off with an initial 15 buzzwords, chosen from a Google search of “most hated buzzwords,” which, by the way, yielded 1,950,000 results. We’ll add more in the future because, love them or loathe them, the minting of business buzzwords never stops.
