Business Objective

From Open Risk Manual

Definition

Business Objective. Objective that reflects the strategic goals and direction of a business within a time frame and available resources

Business objectives allow an organization to define its goals and direction. A company uses strategy and tactics at every level of its operation to achieve its objectives. These define the way a company allocates its resources and the strengths, weaknesses and opportunities it may have. Companies usually do not alter their objectives once they are implemented, unless changes in circumstances arise. Setting a clear course for the organization is key to its success.
