Ritualized goal Setting

MIt IS&T has a new goal setting process. It goes something like this. Start with a sailboat. Map the five stretegic themes into the wind that fills the sales. Map past job performance and the job description into the ballast. Sail on the ocean of the seven core competencies or the sea of individual competencies. Add in the five attributes of a goal followed carefully while maintaining flexibility. Celebrate quarterly and anually. Ah, progress.
