Objectives and performance indicators are tools used to measure the performance of organizations, the performance of individuals, or even achievements in a field.
Who among us has not heard about the goals, whether personally or practically, and some of them do not have sufficient information about them and how they are written and used in our life and scientific matters.
Have you ever wondered what are the goals, their importance, and levels for the organization (the company)? What is measured? Who is responsible for each goal for each stage? What are the criteria for goals? What is the appropriate indicator for measuring each type of goal? And many other questions
I will talk about the goals of organizations (companies) and build indicators briefly, which will help in understanding the levels of goals and their indicators to determine what they are and their importance in charting the way for you to learn more about them.
As it shows below all the necessary tools and information that will help you to know the goals and performance indicators, which in turn will determine your destination in which part you will learn more.
What are the goals?
It is a set of final results that the organization seeks to achieve.
The importance of goals?
When writing the strategies and plans of any organization, the vision and mission of the company must be defined to serve as a beacon that leads the company towards a known term, and in order to achieve that, goals are set.
The objectives are divided into four types:
- Purpose target very
- Aims Aim
- Target / Goals
- Objective operational objective
- Let us move in a simple and quick way to take each goal and detail it separately:
- Purpose goal Purposes
- What is measured: Does the project support the purpose of the organization?
- Target outputs: long-term results (Impact)
- Responsible for the goal: Chairman of the Board.
- Values to know matching projects and purpose.
- A tool used: Strategic dashboard
- Criteria Objectives: The DAC criteria for evaluation are summarized in (need / relevance / effectiveness / efficiency / impact / continuity).
- Target Measurement Indicator: Key Result Indicators (KRIS).
- Aims general goal
- What is measured: Was the project completed as planned?
- Target outputs: Outcome’s medium-term results
- Responsible for the goal: General Manager / Project Manager.
- Values to be known: continuity / profitability / growth.
- A tool used: Logical Framework / Work Breakdown Structure.
- Criteria Objectives: PRRO.E criteria for evaluation are summarized (positive / positive for others / familiarity with the community / outcome / impact).
- Goal Indicator: Result Indicators (RIS).
- Aim goal/goals
- What is measured: Is a mission or stage accomplished as planned?
- Target outputs: short-term results (Outputs)
- Responsible for the goal: direct manager/team leader.
- Values to know: costs / time / specifications.
- A tool used: flowcharts.
- Criteria Objectives: SMART evaluation criteria (specific / scale / realistic / provisional / achievable).
- Goal Indicator: Performance Indicators (PIS).
- Objective operational objective
- What is measured: Was the activity carried out efficiently and effectively?
- Target outputs: Activities.
- Responsible for the objective: who is responsible for completing the mission.
- Values to know effectiveness/efficiency.
- A tool used: PERT / Gantt chart.
- Criteria Objectives: CREM Indicators criteria for evaluation (clear / sufficient / economical / follow-up).
- Target Measurement Indicator: Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).
Here we conclude that the function of the measurement indicators is
Tools used to measure the performance of organizations, the performance of individuals, or even achievements in a field with me.
It is worth noting that for each level there is a specific goal and there is a long explanation about these levels, and all goals are attached to the planning and organization processes of the organization or even on a personal level.
I hope that the information provided by you is sufficient to understand the initial nature of what are the goals and indicators, which in turn will help you to start learning how to build performance indicators, how we do measurement processes and the importance
