Goals for Improvement

As we continue our discussions on an ongoing commitment to Operational Effectiveness, we want to emphasize the value of management oversight in assessment of your organization.

Christiano Ronaldo has said: “Every season is a new challenge to me, and I always set out to improve in terms of games, goals, assists.” We are not a professional Portuguese footballer, but his message is clear. As we begin a new year, gain understanding of how your organization is doing and set forth goals for improvement. That can best be done by evaluating where you are now and where you want to be at the end of the year.

Make 2015 a year of improved Operational Effectiveness.

Operational Goals are as Important as Financial Goals

In our most recent newsletter, we discussed the importance of an ongoing commitment to Operational Effectiveness. In the newsletter the question was raised related to ensuring that the yearly goals include more than just financial achievements. Instead, we propose you consider assessing your organization’s operational issues and set forth goals to improve this year. Here are some examples:
• Are there service standards in place that are realistic, obtainable, yet stretch your organization? Are the service standards realistic and obtainable, yet striving for excellence?
• Is your Staff sufficiently cross-trained? If not, consider implementing a program to accomplish this?
• Do you need to establish “repeatable processes” that will position your organization for expansion and quick growth?

Jim Rohn reminds us “Discipline is the bridge between goals and achievement.” Goals are a powerful tool to success. Let’s just remember to establish both financial and operational goals. That creates Operational Effectiveness.
