The Science Of Target Setting (And How Most Companies Get It Wrong) | Corporate Rebels

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/05/07

Food for a lot of thought in most companies: [WayBackThe Science Of Target Setting (And How Most Companies Get It Wrong) | Corporate Rebels

My thoughts so far:

  1. Targets only work if the people having to work with their targets are fully involved. This holds for performance measuring as well.
  2. A target is very different from a strategic direction. Direction needs to get translated into targets by the people directly involved with the targets.
  3. Usually managers do not understand what is going on at the front-line. The front-line usually is very much aware of how management thinks and operates.

All of this basically comes down to:

  • If you want your company to become agile, any one-way (top-down or bottom-up) path fails.
  • When people in your organisation cannot cope with networked or multi-way paths, you have the wrong people.
