Creating Management Goals
project management, as in other areas of life, the creation of goals is
very important. After all, goals give us something to strive for and
allow us to build confidence in our abilities to accomplish tasks and
complete assignments. When one is a project manager, it is important to
have goals in order to provide direction and encourage improved
performance. It also provides measurable success. You can make a report
and cite goals attained to show progress and you can track the success
of a program or project by the goals reached, and by new goals set.
Management goals fall into two categories: goals for the project and
goals for personal management style.
Goals for the project.
These are goals that every project manager knows are necessary to move
the project along. As each goal is reached, another stage of the
project is complete, until the ultimate goal, the successful completion
of the project, is reached. These goals are set according to what needs
to be done. Project objectives provide guidance, and goals help the
project manager guide his or her team to achieving the objectives. The
goals are chosen by virtue of what needs to be done, and what tasks
need to be accomplished in order to finish the project.
Project management goals.
The project manager may set goals in general for the improvement of her
or his management style. These may include overcoming personal
weaknesses and management defects. Some managers may wish to be more
organized while others may strive to listen better and develop better
communication skills. The important thing to remember is that as the
project manager sets and achieves goals to be a better manager, the
team’s over all performance improves as well, and the project goals are
more likely to be met.
management goals, whether they be for the project or for personal
improvement, one must first recognize that there is room for
improvement, and that certain things need to be accomplished in order
to effect those improvements. Goals should be based on what you want or
need to get done. Additionally, they should be attainable. They should
also be fairly small in scope. A huge goal can be discouraging, as it
is difficult visualize a large goal’s accomplishment. It can be
overwhelming to even begin tackling a large and complicated goal. Small
goals that can be attained in a reasonable amount of time are best.
does not mean that goals should not be challenging. It is possible to
have small but challenging goals. The challenge is what helps team
members and project management grow and improve. Stretching oneself is
a vital part of growing as a team member or as a project manager. But
make sure that the management goals you set are not impossible.
Accomplishing a difficult task and reaching a hard goal inspires
confidence to continue trying new things. Constantly failing because
goals are not attainable only breeds poor morale.
management software made to help create goal plans and track progress
can help in the creation and attainment of management goals. But no
matter how you do it, setting goals is a great way to feel good about
getting things done.
