Team Goals and Objectives


Employees who participate in organizational teams need to understand what they are trying to accomplish. They may have specialized skills and knowledge concerning the company’s operations, but they must also be able to articulate and provide direction for the team. Action plans, with specific goals and objectives, give a team direction, keep the participants on task, and increase a team’s productivity.
