In this article, we will cover the different types of goals and objectives you can use within Impraise.
Personal Development Goals
Personal Development Goals help improve your skills, character, and capabilities which in turn help you grow as a person advance in your career. They can be projects you would like to tackle that will give you expertise in a professional area of interest, or attributes you would like to further develop upon (like public speaking or coding in a new language). It is important to create ambitious goals that are broken down into milestones. These actionable steps will help you measure your progress and keep you focused on your end goal.
Business objectives drive alignment and keep everyone on target by creating visibility on personal, team, and organization-wide objectives. They help focus and engage your people by showing them how their work connects to the bigger picture. Business objectives can be created on an organization, team, or personal level and can either be stand-alone or linked together to show dependencies and contributions. Progress on business objectives is tracked with Key Results, which can be either based on completion or with metrics (a number, %, or $).
