Ensuring On Target Delivery ( Licensed by Allenbaugh Associates 18th May 2017)

Aligning Team and Individual Goals with Organisational Key Performance Imperatives. (1 Day)

Program Overview

Goal Alignment is, essentially, a way of ensuring that the individuals in an organisation work towards a common purpose: the success of the business by ensuring ‘On Target Delivery’.

Organisational objectives provide the starting point for overall business goals. Organisational goals and objectives are then set, followed by team goals, leading to the drawing up of plans between individuals and managers, with continuous monitoring and feedback supported by review sessions.

The objective setting process starts at the top of the organisation, at board level, and measurable business objectives are developed to drive the business towards the vision along with the behaviours it wants to demonstrate.

This programme enables participants to understand, practice and finesse this process by use of tools and methodology provided.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of this session participants will be able to:

State the importance of the alignment of organisational and team/individual objectives.

Identify a clear ‘line of sight’ between business, team and individual objectives i.e.

Demonstrate proficiency in setting SMART Objectives.

Demonstrate proficiency in monitoring and measuring progress of SMART Objectives.

Recognise the importance of, and successfully conduct, regular 121’s and reviews.

Training Methodology

The programme is fully interactive and uses a variety of methods to engage participants, maintain interest and enhance learning.

Programme delivery includes instructor led lectures, real life exercises, case study reviews, role playing scenarios and group discussions using an integrated and highly participative learning approach.

Experiential, action-based activities and exercises will be employed to help participants generate new ideas and apply practical tools that can be implemented within their own organisations.
