The Management

This afternoon at work my boss asked me to find out what a colleague’s job actually entailed. I looked him up on the work intranet and found this job description:

“To lead and manage the Communication team of [organisation], by defining the expected results and ensuring its staff delivers the work required to implement the team’s work program in the context of [organisation]’s mission and objectives, while enabling the staff to develop their potential.”

We were unable to decide whether it was an inept, overly literal translation from another language, or an entirely computer-generated text. As far as I can tell, it means “Make sure everyone else does their job properly”.
