Organizational Goal Setting

Here are some good questions I came across regarding personal goal setting that I adapted for an organizational perspective.

  • What would you do differently or how would your organization change if it suddenly had $5,000,000*?  What would you start?  What would you stop? What would you do more of?  What would you do less of?   (*Adjust for your organization by multiplying your yearly expenses by 10.)  
  • Fifty years from now, if you could write your organization's history, what would you want it to say about the next three years?  Five years?  Ten years?
  • What would your organization attempt if you were guaranteed success? 
  • What does your organization do really well? What leads to the most "this is awesome" moments?
  • Where can your organization be more generous?
  • What risks is your organization stalling at taking?
  • What is the one thing that is slowing your organization down?  Pretend it doesn't exist.  Now what?  (Does it really exist?)
  • What should your organization be doing (or doing more of) that it isn't today?
