Banish the 4-way Tug-of-War
Maximize Team Effort
Organizations using MyObjectives enjoy teams that are aligned in purpose, aware of all teams’ work plans, and kept aware of progress on those work plans. At the start of each period, each team works through a sophisticated eight-step wizard to build their scorecard, crafting their work plan for the period. In the final steps of the wizard they review their plan with their manager and their peers to uncover and eliminate duplication of effort and identify plans they can offer support for.
Team Work Plan
Teams craft a scorecard of around 13 to 25 objectives and key results. They prioritize each one and align them to your goals. They evaluate them using the SMART principles. They decide who is responsible for each versus who is consulted, informed, etc.
Teams look over other teams' scorecards, looking to eliminate duplication, find areas of overlapping support, and coordinate their timelines and roles. By linking to other teams' objectives, they intertwine their SMARTscore.
Everyone is more engaged because there is agreement on the work to be undertaken, each team member knows their role, they know what to focus on by priority, and they see how their contribution matters to the team through the SMARTscore.
