plans and individual goas that contribute toward the organization’s goals (Starbird & Cavanagh, 2011). Individual goals that are created to align with organizational goals will more often than not include ideas that are innovative in bringing the task to completion earlier and more efficiently than before. Moreover, when goals are aligned at every level of the organization, it can have the benefits of helping guarantee that the actions that team members participate in contributing directly to the vision and mission of the organization. Also, goal alignment helps encourage team members at all levels by exhibiting how the work they have done is associated to those visions and missions of the organization (Kanaga & Browning, 2011). Goal setting meetings should occur on a yearly basis to ensure that goal alignment remains intact along with performance monitoring meetings.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
