Goal Setting



Conservative goals do not generally inspire teams to achieve their full potential. Aggressive but achievable goals, that may be met only 75-80% of the time, are much more likely to stimulate top performance. Even when actual results come in under plan the organization is often still much better off than had it planned conservatively, as suggested by the aim-high and do-better lines added to the graph in the figure.
