In order to initially devise and delegate goals and tasks for yourself and other individuals, it's vital to identify a few key areas you must 'focus' on.

3. Set yourself measurable targets (KPIs) to tackle the objective

KPIs are key performance indicators that are generally related to the objective you set. KPIs are useful in evaluating the success of your organization regarding the particular activity in which it engages with. Additionally, within this nutrition strategy template, it can be beneficial for understanding the importance of certain goals and why achieving them can better an organization's internal capabilities.

For instance, two potential KPIs for the Objective of 'Work on effectively reducing the number of deficiencies' can be: Increase training per department from 3 to 10 and Decrease the time between detecting deficiencies and the fixation process by 2 days.

4. Implement related projects to achieve the KPIs

It’s impossible to achieve your goals if you don’t have implementable actions set in place. Projects are ways of directly achieving KPIs as well as hitting those strategic objectives.
