Aligning Organizational Goals

Background

With proper goal alignment, each person within an organization can clearly see the direction of the business and understand how the activities he or she is engaged in contribute to meeting the overall organizational goals. However, goals need to be tailored for each functional area (department) because each area contributes differently to the overall goal attainment.

In this assignment, you will:

  • Develop a mission statement.
  • Create a strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT) analysis.
  • Devise a business strategy based on strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT) analysis.
  • Develop organizational-level goals.
  • Develop departmental-contributor-level and individual-contributor-level goals aligned with the organizational goals. 

Scenario

Its major competitors are the large consulting houses that primarily service large corporate clients and are very expensive. Until recently, the company did not see a viable market in green consulting. It is now beginning the venture into green consulting. Its approach is to retrain its senior consultants and approach its existing clients.
