Ray Harnes is a Master’s of Information Systems student at the University of Nevada, Reno. Ray has worked in the Information Technology field for over 15 years and holds I.T. certifications from Microsoft, Novell, SANS, and ITIL.

The purpose of the BUZZWORDBINGO blog is to discuss topics in organizational management and behavior while trying to avoid the business clichés that often develop into meaningless “green words”. So if you see a discussion containing words like synergize, paradigm, or catalyst, they are most likely written to poke fun at something someone else said.
