Business Bullshit

Synopsis

Our organisations are flooded with empty talk. We are constantly 'going forward' to lands of 'deliverables', stopping off on the 'journey' to 'drill down' into 'best practice'.

Being an expert at using management speak has become more important in corporate life than delivering long lasting results. The upshot is that meaningless corporate jargon is killing our organisations.

In this audio book, management scholar the author argues we need to call this empty talk what it is: bullshit. The audio book looks at how organisations have become vast machines for manufacturing, distributing and consuming bullshit. It follows how the meaningless language of management has spread through schools, NGOs, politics and the media.

Business Bullshit shows you how to spot business bullshit, considers why it is so popular and outlines the impact it has on organisations and the people who work there. It also outlines what we can do to minimise bullshit at work. The author makes a case for why organisations need to avoid empty talk and reconnect with core activities.
