From our wonderful Programs Committee:

Come to the SCALL Business Meeting. Important details follow a humorous paragraph of meaningless business-speak. Meaningless business-speak courtesy the Wall Street Journal's Business Buzzwords Generator,

Next quarter we will launch our new ROI-killer which will unpack the narrative organically. If we recontextualize, we will unfortunately be lagging in iconic agility. Amortize the playing field strategically. Skate to where the puck is going to be. Starting next calendar year, we will silo on out of the box solutions. We need to organically re-imagine our ideation. Next year we will launch our new horizontal management structure-killer which will gamify the minimum viable product organically.
