Define supporting goals

Define supporting goals: Setting Business Unit Goals
Define supporting goals: Setting Business Unit Goals

It's easy to focus on the big departmental goals, but not everyone on the team can directly affect those. Setting goals for supporting functions helps link people's roles to that broader departmental goal. Doing this requires you to break the big goals down into component parts and assess which supporting activities make that big goal possible. With those activities identified, you can proceed to set goals for them to drive departmental alignment around the bigger goal.
