It’s time, once again, for Office Scrabble, where we share obnoxious corporate terms that get spread like dysentery on a Carnival cruise.
Today’s term is “It’s on my radar”. Decoded, this term means that you’re aware of something’s existence. Example: Do you know about apartheid? Probably not. But you’ve heard of it. It was something in Africa, and was probably bad. There was a movie about it but you only saw the trailer. So are you by any means an expert on apartheid? Are you working toward an apartheid solution? Could you answer any apartheid-related questions on Jeopardy? No, but it’s on your radar.
This term is often used by management to deflect questions or inquiries regarding matters that have yet to be thought out or analyzed, and are likely not worth the time or energy when football season is approaching so quickly.
