Take this example from the "Our Biggest Mistake" (in the printed version, the 'K' is backwards - Wacky!):
"THE PRIMARY EXTERNAL IMPLEMENTATION TEAM on our unified communications system project lost management control of one of the key subcontractors, causing confusion, communications breakdowns, and responses to our internal customer that weren't in line with our technology team's customer service goals. The key lesson from this would be to place tight controls on the outsourced project management team that meets[sic] with your desired service levels"
Totally hilarious, as well as informative. Good job Information Week. Awesome "Anecdote from InformationWeek 500 companies" about how a contractor got out of line. The only humour comes from the fact that you've managed to include a parallel construction grammatical mistake in an unfunny business tale and translate it into management speak not worthy of one of Raymond Chen's posts on the subject.
