Benefits of goals

Ø Performance can be improved.

Ø Expectations can be improved.

Ø The Controlling function can be facilitated so that progress can be assessed and corrective action taken.

Ø Meeting goals can increase motivation.

Levels of goals within an organization

1. Strategic goals are broadly defined targets or future end results set by top management.

2. Tactical goals are the targets or future end results usually set by middle management for specific departments or units.

3. Operational goals are those targets or future end results set by lower management that address specific, measurable outcomes required from the lower levels.
