Confusion is Costly.   Clarity is Everything.


"Our business is infested with idiots who try to impress by using pretentious jargon." — David Ogilvy our formal motto is "Confusion is costly. Clarity is everything," our informal motto is, "We take the b.s. out of business." Don't let your company get hijacked by someone who uses jargon or fads to seem like they know what they’re doing.

Our blog will include stories and interviews that expose ridiculous jargon, share your great ideas, and frame hot debates about the noble and frustrating work of professional management.

We need you to keep The Management Index™ current! We'll be active on LinkedIn and other social media, so you can get share and get recognized for your ideas.
