Business Speak

I just avoided using the word "synergy" because it is forever tainted for being such a damn buzzword. It is easily the best word available. We will attain synergy.

It's not in the draft. I suspect it will end up in the final document and I'll just pause while everyone rolls their eyes.

*I* never had a problem with "synergy".

I just hate other expressions that pop up when there are already perfectly good words for them. Like "expand" or "assess" or "examine" in place of "drill down", because I've heard that phrase used in multiple ways any way, so it's not like one is being more clear when using it.

"Next steps" just bugs me for some reason, although I don't mind "action items" that much.
