"Moving forward."
I hate that phrase.
I'm not sure why it irks me as much as it does, but of all the modern management catch phrases, this one, more than any other, is guaranteed to get me an ass-chewing after a staff meeting, when I can't help but grimace.
"Moving forward"?  But we're not talking about something that moves. 
Why not just say "From now on"?  Or "In the future"? 
Sounds passive-voice to me, and I've been drilled to avoid passive voice whenever possible. 
Or maybe it's just that modern management fads piss me off generally.
