Managerial DoubleTalk..

It is said that video conferencing will render people remote from contact with others, that it will have an adverse effect. In commerce today, video conferencing is becoming the way to conduct business. Well, I say 'bring it on', and I am not alone. Anybody who has had to sit through a morning of 'key note speeches' or corporate 'back patting' sessions will feel the same way.

Video conferencing allows us to turn it OFF. Now we can go de-weed the yard and the pompous idiot of a speaker will not notice. We can munch through a family bag of potato chips and consume a six pack of beer without offending the company 'yes' person who would have been sitting next to us.

Just think, no more crap like the statements below. Never again will we have our day spoiled by having to endure this kind of stuff first thing. Video conferencing rules, OK?

(Please feel free to comment on any of the statements below. I am awaiting enlightenment.)

‘Policy is a mechanism for the translation of the priorities and values of the organisation into programs and practices to deliver outcomes.'


'This is a support role that provides change leadership cross-functionally within a project management context. It leads the development and provision of tools, advice, support, methodologies and frameworks for change professionals across the Department of Housing. It operates in a context of consistent change either from a policy, practice or support tool perspective. This change is generated by business need to meet the strategic directions that the business has undertaken. The change may be generated corporately or from a divisional perspective.'


'We're being informed by the process.'


'Convergence is one of the key trends influencing business today. Likewise, Convergent Document Technology is transforming processes and knowledge management within the modern office.'


'This is part of the development of an audience-centred information architecture ... The information architecture itself was the result of extensive consultation with stakeholders...'
