Strategic Roadmap: Objectives & Goals
It is very important for the organization to really think through the objectives and goals that they would like to accomplish. You will need to think about what are all the deliverables and organization should be working on. The SMART model should be implemented to help develop those goals smart stands for specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and a timeframe were to be accomplished when an organization works on goals and clearly communicates this to all their employees everybody could be working in the same direction.
Matt Kerzner: The next one is objectives and goals. These are the objectives and goals of the organization. I firmly believe that you should only put together between 5 to 7 goals.
When the goals are put together, they should follow what's called the SMART model. And SMART stands for specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time frame. So, when you're putting a goal together, you want to make sure you hit each one of those smart objectives.
Once you developed your mission, vision, values, goals and objectives it will be important that each employee developed their own individual actions to help the organization move in the desired direction.
When looking at initiatives and projects it's very important to understand what is in scope and out of scope of the project and to identify all the resources that are needed to make this initiative successful.
This part of the Strategic Roadmap podcast series continues with strategies and measures. There are three major strategies that an organization should concentrate including business development, operating efficiency and bench strength.
The vision for an organization is what we want to be when we grow up. It's a very strategic statement that will let the employees know that this is the direction of the organization and what we want to be one year three years and five years from now.
Core values are what an organization believes in. When an organization puts core values together it can help all employees understand what they need to believe in to all be working in the same direction.
Does your organization have a mission statement? It is very important for an organization to understand why they exist and if all the employees understand what are the activities that are most they will truly understand why the organization exists.
