Spanish term or phrase: Orientado
Orientado Hacia los Resultados Absolutos
Tabitha
English translation:oriented toward the ultimate results
Explanation:
Beware of the cognate "absolute," which probably isn't the best word in this context. Businesses speak often of "ultimate results" or "long-term results," but hardly ever of "absolute results"...

Cheers, HC

please do not use "orientated"

Explanation:
I agree with the colleagues about 'oriented', plain and simple, but what about 'Headed'? Sounds different:
'Headed towards the absolute results'.
Luck!

Guided Toward Absolute Results


Explanation:
Everyone's so caught up on the semantics. Think about what "oriented" (which does not come off well in English in this context) means...... anyway, in my mind this is exactly what is said. Hope it helps you!
