KPIs and goals setting is with the end in mind. Most organisations practice some degree of management by objectives (MBO), some call it strategic thrusts, some call it strategic pillars, some are driven by corporate vision, mission and strategy; yet other organisations adopted variations of the balance scorecard model. Regardless of which business model, management and employees must be equipped with the skills to set clear and aligned key performance indicators and individual staff goals.

From the employee point of view, the connection between their goals, performance and rewards must achieve what is known as the "line of sight" principle.

This workshop will help participants to align understanding of the strategic planning process, use of terminology, the quality of written KPIs and goals, as well as alignment between organisation, departmental and individual KPIs and goals. It will also provide the necessary soft skills to guide supervisors and managers to lead their team towards successful goal achievement.

- appreciate the strategic planning process
