    Best Practices

    Did a consultant come up with this one?  I think the answer is yes.  Right along with "benchmarking".  At least no one has converted "best practices" to "bestpracticing" yet.  How can there be best practices in a work group of five people, all under thirty...

    Actionable

    I'd Like To Speak To That Point -- Gdi!

    No!  No!  No!  My mom even says this one.  No one speaks TO a point.  They speak ABOUT a point, in favor of a point, or regarding a point.  We speak TO other people.

    "speak To"

    I know, it's two words. I dislike having someone say "we need 'to speak to' this problem". We speak to other people. We speak about or of problems.
