Office Jargon of the Day: Going Forward

By Paperstone 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.”
