The more complex your business and the higher the pressure to move quickly, the harder it is to maintain a clear direction for everyone. Goal-setting can help us focus managers and employees, but it can be very tricky.  How do we know we have the right goals?  How do we track progress?  And how can we progress faster than the competition?

In this webinar we will explore how to use careful goal-setting to maintain the focus of your company, and how Lean practices can help you reach your goals sooner.

You will learn about:

  • Why your goals may not be as clear as you think
  • The art of choosing the right goals at the right time
  • How goals may inspire collaboration or competition
  • How the wrong approach to goals can slow down execution
  • Integrating process, product and strategic goals
  • The OKR (Objectives and Key Results) approach to goal-setting
  • The crucial role of goals in problem identification and selection
  • How Lean helps organizations reach goals and solve problems faster
