Jargonwatch

"Get After" for "take on". Usage: business presentations. As in, "we have to get after our 2011 budget planning, if we want to be funded in the next fiscal year." Assessment: not too bad, but as with anything that shows up in Jargonwatch, in danger of being over-used.

"Stand Up" for "put into production". Usage: business presentations. As in, "we've stood up 4 new, low-power, multi-core servers in the past 2 months, and that is only the beginning". Assessment: not too bad, but having a strongly colloquial flavor, it could be easily over-used.
