In my company the word "methodology" is a euphemism. When a prospect calls and asks about doing some particular project about which we know little or nothing, we are instructed to reply, "Ah yes, we have a methodology for that." Meaning: we don't have a clue but if this conversation goes on long enough we might take the trouble to find out.
