Gap Assignment creates accountability threads throughout a Division and between Divisions from their highest level strategies to the lowest level associate goals. These accountability threads form the virtual bridge that spans the Division’s Strategy Execution to Performance Management gap. MBMs are used by Managers (i.e. Project Sponsors) to assign Owners (i.e. Project Managers) to each of a Division’s highest level strategies. These assignments hold them both accountable for achieving the assigned strategy. MBMs are used again by the Owners (i.e. Project Managers) to cascade lower level associate goals to all teammates assigned to their project.
The assignment of Managers and Owners to a goal holds them both accountable for achieving it. V2R allows an unlimited number of these lower level goal assignments. In addition, Stakeholders may also be assigned to each Division strategy and associate goal to clarify upstream, downstream and subordinate relationships. Stakeholders can then optionally rate the subjective performance of the Goal Owner based on its customized Rating Table when the goal has been completed.
