Overview

Understanding American Business Jargon: A Dictionary

In the 1990s, the American workplace is undergoing right-sizing, restructuring, downsizing, empowerment, and paradigm shifts! In other words, fewer people are attempting to do more tasks. Business buzzwords help convey ideas, issues, or responses. Business jargon is communication shorthand, but people need to correctly interpret this shorthand, which requires a common understanding. American business people too frequently assume new individuals in their organization and their professional counterparts around the world understand business jargon. This book is a practical reference for students, managers, and international business people trying to comprehend the fast-paced buzzword-laden language used by business people in the United States.
