Acronym:  M.A.D. = Making A Decision. 
Over the years a pattern developed each morning as I asked the team "Are you MAD today?"  When heard for the first time, this question was confusing.  Once understood, each person would smile and say "YES, I am MAD today".  Silly acronyms in a business might certainly gag a few of the more sophisticated people in the room but they can be so much fun and certainly make a point.

Acronym:  M.A.D. = Making A Difference

Either acronym works.  You pick.  Be MAD today.

The real question is:  "Which body part is used to make decisions?"
