I just read something that included the phrase "become the SME" (pronounced smee).
This strikes me as so funny I think everyone needs to hear it. Doesn't it sound like science fiction?
Before you can use the force, you must become the Smee...
I must pass these challenges so I can achieve enlightenment and become the Smee...
Maybe it's just me. In any case, it's just corporate jargon for "subject matter expert", meaning "to know something very well".

Sometimes corporate speak approaches true beauty. It's like illuminated manuscripts. So abstract, so distant from plain language.
your wicked thoughts
Ha! at my place, they just call those things "ess em ees." not nearly as much fun as "smees." It's wonderful you can find beauty in corporate-speak. I'm still trying.
