Reality checking goals

Reality checking goals: Setting Business Unit Goals
Reality checking goals: Setting Business Unit Goals

Goals can make sense in isolation, but when you add them all up, you may be asking for unrealistic results from your team—you'll need to evaluate how department goals impact one another. If you set a goal for revenue growth and a goal for cost cutting, you may have created an impossible situation for the team because they can't spend money to drive revenue. It's this kind of reality checking that leads to more reasonable and achievable results.
