U is for Unpack

I only became aware of this one recently and then found myself using it over and again. At my last writing workshop, for example. “So, that’s a few housekeeping issues knocked on the head. Here’s an overview of what we’re going to cover today. First we’ll look at the creative process and then we’re going to unpack the key tools and strategies…”
Oh my god.
These people have to come to me for creative writing and they’re looking at me like: why the hell are you spouting corporate bullshit? What’s wrong with explore, or break down, or analyze, or chunk down, or deconstruct?
Or is there a nuance I’m too stupid to grasp?
Please do tell me.
