Overallocate goals: Setting Business Unit Goals
Overallocate goals: Setting Business Unit Goals

When breaking department goals down and allocating portions of them to different teams, you can take an approach of overallocating the goal. This means when you add up all the sub-team goals, they amount to more than the department goal. This approach can improve your chances of hitting your department goal, but it can also put unnecessary pressure on your teams to deliver more than they really have to.
