Why utilize Goals in Ambition?
More visibility equals more success. Keep your reps focused on progress towards goals by visualizing how each activity gets them closer to success. Seeing is believing.
Your Goals deserve a home. Goals are typically discussed only on occasion and are hidden in systems, spreadsheets, and piles of paper. How are reps supposed to know how close they are to hitting them, providing the motivation to work to reach key goals?
Types of Goals
Ambition explicitly supports the following types of Goals:
- Contribution: The most common Goal. Individual contribution makes Team and Organizational milestones possible. Typically tracked automatically through Ambition Metrics.
- Connection: Intended for network-effect optimization and tracking.
- Career: Intended for contributor-level, career-focused Goals. Examples include continuing education milestones, attaining new responsibility and promotions.
- Capability: Intended for Team or personal capability development. Typically tracked through a Manual Metric, rather than automated data.
We recommend adhering to the S.M.A.R.T system where each Goal is Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-Bound.
