    difficult to get its meaning.

    From: Of course,company may set up deals with bosses they no longer want in order to encourage them to go quickly and without a legal fight. But a generous advance promise to reward failure is no way to encourage success.
    Question:
    "a generous advance promise to reward failure"
    1. a promise ?
    2. if it is a promise, then the promise is a one that to reward failure?
    3. or anything elses?

    It's a promise of a generous advance. It's saying that giving a company a lot of money to leave a deal without starting a legal argument is a bad thing because it encourages failure. They are rewarding failing companies by giving them a lot of money (a "generous advance").
