Jargon, jargon everywhere and not a drop of communication

As a member of the corporate sector, I sometimes feel like I'm stuck in an episode of Star Trek or at the very least talking to a car mechanic. Honestly, I'm trying to figure out what on earth this sentence means: The goal is to reduce risk and provide the lowest possible TCO. What?!?! The memo only has 13 phrases and sentences. I'm scratching my head over 7 of them.

Maybe I need to get into the jargon business...

We'll have the TBD on the TBA when the STPD has been re-initialized.

The CRP has HT the FN with new enterprise-wide vigor.

Maybe I should start answering these memos in German. Ich versteh Sie nicht. Sprechen Sie Englisch?
