Goal-setting is an absolute must for people who want to succeed, find their true purpose, and create joy in their lives. Without clear goals, you will not have a clear direction on where you’re heading in your life. Here, at BonAmi we follow a work criteria in which the first step is to setting up the goal set.
How to Set Goals
Have you ever heard of a ship sailing in the sea without any direction? How it will reach its final destination? Likewise, how will a software development company be successful and will survive in a highly competitive environment without a clear vision of future and a mission to follow?
Both concepts- a software development company mission and vision- are an important part of the company strategy for the future. They need to be clearly and shortly defined after some discussions at a management level and present the idea of the company’s direction to its final destination. The idea for final destination should be regularly predefined by the management team but will always be related to a few results- i.e.: success measured through more clients, more software development projects and a higher profit.
Defining goals at each level means that you have the opportunity to assess performance- goals against actual accomplishment. This is an important fact that will give you an idea of the weaknesses and strengths in different aspects of the software development work and process. Based on this analysis you can make a plan of improvements and set goals, of course, based on this plan. All efforts will lead to changes in the work processes and will probably increase the productivity of all employees.
