Business Jargon Awards

The Management Consultancies Association, in conjunction with the Financial Times, has announced the results of its business jargon awards.

The competition is designed to reveal the worst offenders who use unnecessary, complex or confusing language in a written document. Three companies tied for first place including two consultancies. The “winners” were Arthur D Little, PolyDoc and Manhattan Associates. The MCA has also announced details of its annual awards for the best management book of 1998, which is designed to encourage writers whose books contribute stimulating ideas on business management and sound business practice. Those interested in nominating a particular book can contact the event organisers, Kinross and Render, on 0171 592 3100.
