The Encyclopedia Of Business Cliches
Business people like cliches. I’ve heard a lot of them in speeches, lectures, and meetings and you can find a lot more in the corporate documents. Recently, Seth Godin created a Squidoo lens called The Encyclopedia of Business Cliches where he and his readers posted a lot of words and expressions that have lost their meaning because of excessive usage.

- Best of breed
- Improve ROI
