Avoiding pitfalls: Setting Business Unit Goals
Avoiding pitfalls: Setting Business Unit Goals

Common departmental goal-setting pitfalls include not looking at all goals in an integrated view, not aligning incentives, setting goals too aggressively, and not communicating how goals tie to the broader strategy. If the team is left confused about what the goals are and why they're being pursued or they see the goals as unrealistic, you won't have their commitment to achieving them.
