Office Jargon of the Day: Going Forward

By on July 22, 2010 in Fun, Office Jargon

going forward


going forward, adv. henceforth, from this point in time, from now on, in the future. Sometimes, “on a go-forward basis,” a mutation of an already pointless phrase. In speech, no meaning is usually lost by replacing “going forward” with “erm” or pausing to scratch your nose.

Example: “Going forward, there are reasons to be optimistic about the Q3 figures.”
