Rewrite

A couple of decades ago, when there was a first outbreak of what we might call 'management speak,' someone with too much time on their hands started rewriting the Bible as for a management seminar. The one I can remember is:

The Lord and I are in a shepherd/sheep situation and I am in a position of negative need.

That's an easy one to start with but please write the reference in the comments box. They will get harder. Answers in a fortnight.

Chris is right of course

but

what I can't work out is where you get your management speak from... I've been teaching it for 18 years now and I've never heard anything like that!

You're obviously at a sensible educational establishment, Caroline

Management speak isn't what is taught, it's what is learned.
