Goal alignment is critical for business success. It ensures that each person within your organization can see the direction for the business and know how their job fits in with the big picture. To achieve goal alignment in your organization, you must first clearly communicate your strategic business objectives across the entire company. By allowing managers to access and view the goals of other departments, your organization can greatly reduce redundancy while finding better ways to support each other. With everyone working together toward the same objectives, your company can execute strategy faster, with more flexibility and adaptability. Essentially, goal alignment strengthens your leadership and creates organizational agility by allowing managers to:
- Focus employees’ efforts on your company’s most important goals;
- Understand more clearly all responsibilities associated with specific goals; and
- Strengthen accountability by assigning measurable, articulated goals visible company-wide.
