How do you turn those breakthrough objectives into workable targets and objectives at the departmental level? First, we develop top-level improvement priorities and then apply metrics to them. Next, we create business-specific second- and third-level targets to improve that tie directly to the top-level priorities.

This alignment keeps people focused and integrates different departments, making sure everything across the entire company aligns back up to the strategic objectives.
