For about the first 30 years of my life, 'source' was almost exclusively a noun. Now it's almost exclusively used as a verb - why?

Which "Little book of management crap" decided that the new way to say "From now" or "In the future" is "Moving forward". If I hear it one more time I will scream and pull my hair out. Which other way would we be moving, when it comes to time?

I also wondered when they started to "roll that out".

I'm not being kept in the loop at the moment, but I'll give you heads up on the situation as soon as.

The next person to say we should do...moving forward to me is going to be told, no we should do it while moving like this <general body wibble>

I'll cascade that for you...

and I'll touch base, while raising the bar!

You deserve to medal for that opinion

StealthPolarBear Wed 15-Jun-11 21:55:26

AFK make sure you progress it for me too, there's a dear

Ok heres where I admit I hate "back story"

Look can we all just stop and deep dive this?

I wish people would go back to doing things instead of actioning them.

It's a big ask, but let's go Forward and max out the synergies.

I think you all need to reconsider your postions and start thinking outside the box.

"my ass is on the line and I don't want a cock up"

(OK, I nicked that one from the telly).

OK I get this

apart from source

source has always been a verb in my lifetime, and I am very very old, and the only time it's used as a noun is to denote origin

activate Wed 15-Jun-11 21:59:09

but anyway lets run it up the flagpole and see if it sticks

I think it just needs a bit of blue sky thinking really

This thread is approaching its tipping point......

You could flag it up for blue sky thinking.

continuousexpansion Wed 15-Jun-11 22:02:51

I'll action it, and also solution it just for good measure smile

we really need to diarise with some other Mners to make sure we get maximum inputs and outputs.

stripygiraffe Wed 15-Jun-11 22:03:31
