When last we visited corporate America, we were exposed to a new and exciting world of vocabulary. And now, as I am back in the throes of the madness - I thought I would share more "buzz word" knowledge.
"Socialized" - shared knowledge. Pass it around to fellow coworkers and groups so that everyone is aware of what's going on. I socialized this problem with the team in order to cover all bases.
"Adjust for real time" - pretty self-explanatory I think. Adjusting time lines/deadlines to fit realistic dates.
"Reach out" - communicate with. We reached out to the marketing team in order to get the materials out to the customers.
"Spin up" - kind of promote, add responsibility. We will spin up Suzie so that she will be 2nd tier support behind me.
"Shared resource" - personnel that is shared between/paid from different departments. Suzie can't be spun up any higher because she is a shared resource. (this one is my least favorite - I don't like people being referred to as resources)
And that concludes this session of Buzz Words 101, part 2. I will continue to monitor the situation in order to keep us all up to date. Corporate America will thank us.
