Productivity Tools | Goals
"At our annual review we suggested goals for the upcoming year. I recall doing that last year as well, though I have no recollection of what those goals where last year or if they where accomplished" --Many People
Productivity Tools | Goals is about building a plan around or supporting goals so that those goals can be achieved.
As an example if a toy maker has as one of their there core values to promote educational play, they may set a goal to build a robot kit which helps children learn about robots by providing the parts and instructions for building and programming one themselves.
This goal would have a description, multiple objectives, a deadline and it is supported by a core value. To accomplish this goal however, it needs to be broken up into several projects, probably involving several teams. Those projects would have tasks, and the completion of those tasks would bring the company closer to acheiving its goal.
