OPM set the bar pretty high yesterday on sheer volume of jargon in a single press release. In the space of less than 150 words, the release manages to pack in the following terms: "task force," "business and architecture plan," "information technology solutions," "strategic management" (twice), "human capital," "cost-effective," "interoperable," "architectural deliverables," "customer service," and "strategic planning." Impressive. Indecipherable, but impressive.

 

Tom Shoop is vice president and editor in chief at Government Executive Media Group, where he oversees both print and online editorial operations. He started as associate editor of Government Executive magazine in 1989; launched the company’s flagship website, GovExec.com, in 1996; and was named editor in chief in 2007.
