: : Perhaps we should add "blowfish mentality" to the "Corporate Speak" glossary.

: Yes, we should. It would be a "win-win situation."

[translation : why not use "inculcate"? It is a valid and specific word, usually beyond the vocabulary of 'management-speak'ers, which derives it's communion from cliche and word-mangling. Forsooth, 'inculcate' should be banned from such mealy mouths as being too useful a word to allow it to become mangled and incorporationed in Brent-speak.)
