set, managers at all levels need an easy way to view,
manage and monitor such employee goals, so they can
ensure that they are on track, and to address those
ones that fall behind schedule or target.
Smart's Goal Management System provides you with
an online capability and database where goal setting,
alignment and management can be achieved with the least
effort, as follows:

at the top.

management can see all employee goals; managers can
see those of direct reports; employees can see their
goal action steps, standards, due dates, priorities,
KPI scorecard dashboards at any organization level.
goals to individuals or to multiple team members in
a single batch process.
involve employees with goal building (even leave it
to them to formulate, for managers to edit and approve).
and track goal status in real-time.
goals to performance reviews.
employee (career) development goals.
Most Goal Management Systems only provide for a Corporate
Goal Hierarchy. The Appraisal Smart Goal Management
System, however, also allows for the creation of Goal
Hierarchies at lower unit levels, consisting of those
goals cascaded from above, but where unit managers can
also add any additional goals unique to their own unit
of which can be cascaded to their direct reports. Employees
can even create their own Goal Hierarchies to assist
with their own goal planning and to have all their goals
in a logical 'birds-eye-view' structure.
Goal Management Module is an optional add-on
module to the core Appraisal Smart System (regular employee
performance reviews) but is also available as a stand-alone
