Cascading Goals is the process of setting and linking goals at different levels within a company to ensure and maintain the alignment of a company’s objectives and employees’ goals.
Define Goals at Each Level
"It’s not easy to align your workforce with high-level company goals. Have a clearly defined goal at the executive level and make sure you cascade it appropriately. Goals will become more granular as you cascade down, but your junior employees need to know the ultimate company goals. If your employees don’t know what you want, how can they know what they need to do to grow and develop within the company?"
