Setting the Right Goal

Extract from Taskmaster – Startupsmart 24/11/11

 

What do you key goals look like? Are they specific (“We will increase sales by 25% in the next 12 months”) or are they a little more fuzzy (“We’ll be one of the leading firms in our sector in two years”).

The process of goal setting isn’t easy, but listening a Matt Kesby webinar (the execution practice leader at the Australian arm of education and training group Franklin Covey) Matt had a simple strategy for setting a goal that looks something like this …

(Verb) (Measure) from (X) to (Y) by (when)

Sounds a little bit strange, but when you put it into a real life situation it works really well:

Increase (verb) sales (measure) from $1 million (X) to $2 million (Y) by the end of 2012.

Give the model to your people and get them to start trying it out. It’s a great way to get consistent goals set across your business.
