Business jargon mantra

I read this in an actual business plan today:
<Company X> has a flat business structure, organized around cross-functional core processes with down-sized functional units where employees are measured for end-of-process performance objectives.

Clear your mind; read that over and over; meditate upon it, and eventually your head will explode.


  • Ouch!

    Is the translation "Company X has a flat business structure" ? It was very difficult to think about.

  • My translation would be: In Company X, everybody does everything, there is no management, and final results are the only thing that matter.

    But I had to put all the pieces of my brain back in my head before I could figure that out.
