Too true and often what I've had to focus on in strategy roles is the appropriate lingo. The reason some of the b******s is actually needed is that the on the ground language comes with too much baggage that means it is not interpreted in the right spirit. The onus is on the strategy person to articulate what the b*******s actually means and that is what is usually missed out - leading to everyone thinking of it as b******s.

No, it's a descriptive term for "b**locks". Management gobbledygook at it's worst.  Angry
