AlmondSauce841242dI'll be honest, after being stuck in the corporate world for way too long, I still don't really know what anyone's on about when they talk about "pivoting".
For others with the same question: Pivoting is a term that VC's were using for a number of years that referred to a company's change in product direction while attempting to find market fit.
Ex: You start out trying to build a cool app for managing work, but then you realized that the integration component you built to enable that work has a much more viable market than the product you were targeting, so you pivot from being a work management play to being a data integration play.
Or, as is this case, a term used sarcastically to refer to management that has no idea what it's doing moving mountains to put out every small trashfire.
