(1).  The guy who takes the client out to lunch occasionally, but does no real work on the account.

 

“So, Steve will still be the quarterback of your relationship, but you should feel free to reach out to any of us if you have any specific questions relating to the management of your accounts.  He likely will be out of the office when you call.”

Quick and Dirty

& filed under .

 

(1).  A rough calculation or estimate.

 

“Hey, Joel…I’ve got a meeting in twenty.  Can you get me the average annual fees on the Johnson account since inception.  Just give me the quick and dirty.”

 

Props to Mark R. for the submission.

 

(2).  An excuse to do sloppy work on grounds that the work product will only be used once or temporarily, when in fact it will immediately become a fundamental piece of the organization’s infrastructure.

 

“Yeah, I could’ve stayed all night working on this thing, but since they’re only going to use it for talking points, I just did the quick and dirty.”

 

Props to Mike S. for the submission.
