Mostly large organizations have a Strategic Plan and a Business Plan, and small and medium sized enterprises have a Business Plan. These plans set out the organization’s goals and objectives and provide a framework or a hierarchy of objectives.
Managers, teams and individuals need to understand how their roles and responsibilities are aligned to these plans. This is achieved through a set of performance objectives which provides a clear ‘line of sight’ linking individual, team and organisational performance.
This is known as a ‘Clear Line of Sight to True North’. True North is what the organization is aiming to achieve – its direction, its plans and strategies. True North provides a reference point for managers when planning and making decisions, in the same way as a compass setting provides a physical reference point when navigating.
