On a go-forward basis

Taught by Jeff Sawyer | Edit Tagged as on a go-forward basis, | 0 Comments »

"Going forward" has devolved into this even more insidious form. People say "on a go-forward basis" with a straight face. Others nod appreciatively.

As in...
On a go-forward basis, we will send these requests through marketing.

Backtrack

Taught by FrankSpank | Edit Tagged as backtrack, going forward, | 0 Comments »

Backtrack is what you do when you have tried to touch base unsuccessfully or want to repeat what was said earlier. May be used to trump the "Going forward" card.
Likewise can be used to skip over unwanted points.

As in...
Going forward, I would like to backtrack to a previous topic in our conversation.

That's a good question Jim! Let's backtrack to that later though.

As in...
we really should touch base offline about the disconnect occurring before this meeting so we are all on the same page about what caused this gap and move forward.

Lean forward

Taught by dougm_94 | Edit Tagged as forward, foxhole, lean, lean forward, | 0 Comments »

To "lean forward" is to take risk, whether it is wise or not. It is sometimes used in militaristic terms, as in "lean forward in the foxhole."

Typically, the user of this term wants it to be known that he or she is willing to die in place, but will not go down without a fight.

As in...
"I really think we need to lean forward on this one and go ahead and purchase the inventory."

Next steps

As in...
Now that we've got the document ready, we need to iron out the next steps. I've been out of the loop for a while so I'm going to ask Steve to speak to the process of onboarding a monkey soccer team. Steve?

So from what I'm hearing, we've got a commitment and c-level buy-in on the strategic job descriptions and going forward we are going to start calling Managers, Buttholes. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but that's my take on the call.
