Whats with the phrase "Going Forward"
Obviously were not going backwards so why do people use this annoying phrase so often?
(this really bugs me where I work as its overly used and irritates me)
Definitely is overused. I think of it as a fall back phrase that is thought to make a transition from the "as is" state being talked about to the "will be" state that is the start of a change. Its use present what many think makes a more authoritative position on a subject. For example, saying "going forward, we will concentrate our efforts..." versus "from now on we will concentrate our efforts..." "From now on" I think is perceived to be less intense a statement.
