Deloitte Consulting now offers a computer program called Bullfighter, which works on the personal computer much like a spell-checking program. Instead of seeing mispelled words, though, it hunts down bull words--or business jargon--those words and phrases such as leverageable, synch-up, envisioneer, paradigm shift, scalable, incentivize, bandwidth, repurpose, synergy and more. Bullfighter even includes a list of 350 no-use bull words.
