Consultant, de-jargonize thyself

The NY Times reports that Deloitte Consulting has come up with a Word macro, aptly named Bullfighter, that removes or simplifies annoying consultant jargon. Words like “extensible” and “scalable” are simply eliminated; “ecosystem” becomes “system” (which isn’t much better, frankly).

All specialized professions protect their turf through the use of inscrutable jargon. Once people figure out what the hell Deloitte’s wonks are telling them, they’ll stop hiring them.
