What is a Goal?
In Ambition, a Goal has a very specific meaning. A Goal is a milestone or threshold that a Group or Organization works together to achieve.
Ambition offers a flexible, powerful Goal Management system that can be used both standalone or as part of the greater performance management system
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 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, Realistic, and Time-Bound.
