Managing Organisational Goals

The goals of an organisation are vitally important. They are the objectives established by that company to define expected outcomes and to guide employees’ efforts. Organisational goals help define a company’s purpose, assist its business growth and help achieve its financial objectives. The setting specific organizational goals will, by definition, help a company to measure the progress of the organisation.

Goals should be specific, measurable, achievable and timely. Goal setting, when done well, has many benefits:

  • Motivates Employees
  • Aids the Prioritising of Work
  • Facilitates Decision Making
  • Enhances Teamwork
  • Provides a Metric to Measure Success
  • Helps Guides Employees
  • Enhances Time Management

Considering the importance of goal setting, we should perhaps spend more time on it than we do.

Managing Organisational Goals Course

As a manager, you are responsible for setting the goals for your team and for managing their work. Organisational goals can often get lost in layers of management and not get communicated to the individual contributors. In the absence of goals, employees can feel unmotivated or can even set their own goals for achievement, which will result in poor and conflicting team performance. In this course, you will develop skills needed to establish tactical goals for your team based on organisational directives and general goals from your manager and create and manage action plans to achieve these goals.
