An interesting read from this week’s Information Week. At my company, we’re goal-oriented and those goals make up a significant piece of our annual and mid-year reviews. They weigh heavily on our bonus, and I’d say on the whole it goes a long way to establishing a system where everyone feels like they have input to their own objectives.
What we don’t do is publish everyone else’s goals so that they’re reviewable by anyone in the company. I’ll have to look into that.
