Functional goals have weight in Individual Goals  

Goal-Sheet

An employee, team, function and enterprise works best when he/she knows on what he has to do, what will be the success criteria and what are the priorities, and above all how he will build further skills & knowledge to "make it happen"?


Functional goals have weight in Individual Goals


Just like the organizational achievement will have an impact on the performance assessment score of the individual employee, so will the functional vertical’s achievement. This is the alignment of individual, departmental and organizational goals and achievements.

Business alignment does not stop at the organization level. It is important that apart from aligning organizational performance with the individual performance, the vertical’s (or department’s) performance should be tied up with the individual employee’s performance too. This is to say that the department’s overall target achievement will have a bearing on the assessment of the individual’s performance. Once again, the relative importance of the vertical’s performance can vary from employee to employee. It will be lower for lower rung employees and higher for senior positions. Once again this needs to be incorporated in the business planning exercise. Having functional integration like this forces the department head to foster greater sense of team-work and equity within his/her team.
