    pointing forward

    Hi,

    could you please tell me what "pointing forward approach" means?
    I think it means "perspective", "good for the future". Am I right?

    Thank you very much.

    Hanka, please give more context - it's not easy to say without.

    Re: pointing forward

    It seems to imply that the offer being made is one that is indicating a way forward that both companies can follow.

    Re: pointing forward

    This is why I always suggest hyphenating adjectives to avoid ambiguity.

    An approach that points forward should be a "forward-pointing approach."
