Re: Here's another one
I sometimes wonder where this tendency to add lots of adjectives and make up new noun words may come from. Maybe it's the news writers, especially in television news where every attempt is make to keep viewers glued to the program and inserting extra catch works might just work. Or maybe we're getting it from the publicy writers that the larger companies use to promote the latest products and brand names, trying whatever might work to keep their latest in people's minds as the best there is?

Then there's the whole thing about "speed" -- but that horse left the unlocked barn decades ago.

Re: Thinking outside the box
Just ensure that during your ideation session that you utilize a harmonized, federated and holistic methodology that is extensible to myriad disparate use cases to facilitate ubiquitous leveraging of innovations.

And another...
One of my biggest gripes is misuse of the word "bandwidth". As any second-year EE student knows, bandwidth refers to a range of analog frequencies. When quantified, it is always dimensioned in Hertz (Hz), as in "The FCC is now proposing to open up 500MHz more of spectrum for 5G use." (Dan Jones gets a √ for this sentence). The notion of bandwidth is a cornerstone of information theory, the basis of  communications engineering. See, for example, Shannon's Theorem.

Bandwidth does not properly refer to the information carrying capacity of a channel, as in "GPON has a downstream bandwidth of 2.5Gbit/s", or rate, as in "the carrier offers bandwidths up to 1 Gbit/s". The proper sentences are: "GPON has a downstream capacity of 2.5Gbit/s" and "the carrier offers maximum data rates up to 1 Gbit/s".

Confession: I sometimes commit this abomination in my own writings, in works intended for lay audiences.

Thinking outside the box
Hi Iain. We should really touch base offline about this. I think you've only got the low hanging fruit so far. Going forward if we strategize with an idea shower and take a helicopter view I'm sure we can find some more examples. I don't have the bandwidth to discuss right now and next week I'll be OOO on PTO but I don't think we should let the grass grow too long on this.

Re: Here's another one
I agree! It's the time of the "ize" for many. I know of the word "productize" which has been recently introduced to me. That only threw me for a loop!

Waterfall
Waterfall: Non-Agile

Generally used to justify improvements to be achieved by "going Agile".

The term has been around for decades in software development, now it's extended to any kind of project.
