Invent me some BS bingo
i have a had an ‘interesting’ project given to me at work that will involve me coordinating lots of members of staff to do bits of manual filing of documents. I work in an organisation that is rife with BS bingo, and this seems like a perfect opportunity to invent my own term. So…
I would like to plan my project so that staff are working hard in the early stages and the work load tails off towards the end.
I would like to whip out some BS bingo in my proposal.
So far I have
“Head end heavy labour schedule”
“reverse tapered man management scheme”

Your project resource profile is hunting the long tail armadillo.
Imagine a graph showing number of people on the project over time.
Small group at the very start (head of the armadillo)
Ramping up to large group and then dwindling again (body and tail of armadillo)
I used it to describe the effect of a marketing campaign once. It was a bet that I couldn’t get Armadillo into my presentation. 3 months later at the annual company presentations the Sales Director announced that we were “Bringing home the long tailed armadillo”
i am sure you can do the samePosted 4 years ago
