In any project (and in real life too!) goal setting is very important. Without setting goals or what we term as key milestones in a project, one can not set targets or timeline to achieve them. Goal setting is something that makes you keep moving, that make you and your team realize some achievements, that keeps your organization happy and motivated and none the least – that makes you keep introspecting yourself.
Every member of project – be it a developer or tester or performing any other role, sets his own individual goals depending on the tasks assignments given to him/ her. So actually goal setting is a triggering of a chain reaction. A goal setting at the top level in a project triggers it down the line upto the last level. This happens because all are connected in a project. The goals set at the top level will bind some peers and some down the line persons. Their goal setting in return will do the same and henceforth.
