I started Bob Prosen's book "Kiss Theory Good Bye" and he asks "what are your top three objectives?" I believe this is a play on a Drucker concept. I was hoping I could get some examples of individual and corporate objectives. What are your company's objectives? What are yours? How are they written? Do they necessarily align?

Ummm... gotta think some more. :oops:

Adding to above, I understood Individual as personal life goals. I think that works in an overall context.
Aligning specific job objectives to company objectives.

1) Delivering functional parameter on time/ without budget overrun.
2) Implementation and monitoring Management/ operational system and work for optimization/ continuous improvement.
3) Coach people for Functional skills/ Involvement. Make people better.

I am Safety professional, so I align it this way.

Karthik.

Putska -

Thanks for your comments. Company objectives generally fall into three categories. Financial, customers and employees. Here are some examples of each. Financial - revenue, profit and % AR 30, 60, 90 days outstanding. Customers - % satisfied with your company's products and services, # of written testimonials, # of new customers. Employees - % attrition, % satisfied with the company, # trained in a certain specialty.

I hope this gives you some ideas. Please let me know if you need additional information.
