Tips for Planning Your Business Goals for 2018

Does your company have any clearly defined goals? If it doesn’t, you may want to create some. Numerous studies have shown companies are more likely to achieve their goals and their idea of “success” when they know what they are. This is important to remember, and if you are ready to set new goals for the new year, here are some easy ways to get started.


Differentiate Between Long-Term and Short-Term Goals

When setting business goals, it is helpful to separate the short term from the long term. Long-term goals may take months, or even years to achieve, but you can start working on short-term goals immediately. In general, most business goals aim to do at least one of the following:  

• Improve public perception or increase community involvement.  

• Increase revenue or productivity.

• Improve the customer experience.

• Expand in terms of size or market share.

Don’t be afraid to set goals that seem out of your reach – these are often the goals that keep companies striving to be the best. By categorizing your goals, you can gain a clearer view of them.  


Use the SMART Method

This acronym stands for “Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Timely,” and it has helped countless companies accomplish their goals. Using the SMART method allows you to create tangible, concrete ideas instead of merely jotting down general, vague ones.  


Get Others Involved

By working closely with your managers and supervisors, you can gain access to company problems you may not have known existed. These individuals have first-hand knowledge about the inner workings of your company, so their input may prove to be valuable. It can also help to talk to employees, since they are on the front line of day-to-day operations. Simply put, don’t be afraid to talk to your workers if you don’t know where to start.
