Goals are a very important part of business. They are also known as targets or objectives and achieving them is a high priority for companies. Some companies invest a massive amount of money each year to develop a plan to meet their goals, targets, and objectives. Pursuing successful outcomes with company’s goals is embedded in their culture. 

The best goals for any company are in alignment from the front line employee up to the CEO. This means that every role in the company has a clear set go goals that are working towards the way the company defines success. It could be that the company bases it success on revenue generated, profits earned, time and resources donated or under served people being impacted. No matter what the company defines as its success, they all have in common the need to be in alignment throughout the organization in order to achieve it. 

Goals are typically tangible and must include some numbers that can be measured. The exception to this would be the competencies some companies measure on how their work force get things done. The numbers must have a baseline or starting point from which all future results can be evaluated and analyzed.

Many business people have goal setting and achievement in their DNA. This is dependent on how long they have been involved in the annual process of developing the strategic plan and role they were in. Every proficient leader knows the plan must include goals for it to be effective for the company’s ongoing success.

Companies develop their reputation on how well they do with achieving their goals and objectives. This is true for both the publicly traded and privately held companies.

Goals are a way of getting everyone in an organization on the same page. When leaders can communicate the goals clearly to others, they are increasing their odds of achieving them. Goals are a way of measuring success after a set interval. Leaders who see the focus on the goals are more likely to hit them.
