Can someone please give me another word for "operationalize" so I don't have to use it?

How about "put into operation?"

just sort of cough as your saying it and everyone will nod their head and figure it out.

more difficult than I thought: "operationalize - no thesaurus results." Good Luck!

I'm not even sure what that word is supposed to mean, . It sounds like vapid marketing jargon.

use or put to use or put into use, depending on sentence. No one will read it, so also consider random word like rutabaga.

I had the same problem with that word yesterday. Went with "standardize and put into practice" - may not work given context

"Put into effect?" "Implement?"

"concretize"... but that's not much better

Also like how I wind up w/ a typo in operationalize... Clearly it's not a good word to use. =)

make things work continuously = Operationalize. Not sure that helps :)

why do you hate "operationalize" #curious #boringwordbutunderstood

often struggle with that one. Implementation. Proceduralise. Systematize. Start doing it. Make it happen. Ummm, need coffee.

It just sounds so marketing buzzword-y. Feeling like I may need to make up a word. "Workflow" as verb: Workflow THIS, baby.

Settled on razzamatazzize.

OMG. You made a hashtag out of it. You're my hero.

Good call. You can then measure success with razzamatiztics.

Ki0rh4o8_normal @halvorson

Yes. I'm feeling quite confident in my razzamatazism skills these days.
