Company goals and objectives
At the beginning of the year, most companies establish new goals and objectives to guide their work with a strategic planning process. As time passes and you get caught up in the day-to-day flow of work, it’s easier for those ideas to get hazy. They’re tucked away in a hard-to-find document, you’re unsure how other teams are working towards them, or they don’t always guide your management meetings. Using Asana for strategic planning and goal tracking helps keep your objectives top of mind, and communicate on your progress, so you know what’s progressing and how.

How to create a company objective project
Skip the setup and try an Asana-created company goals & objectives template.
Create a list or board project and name it “Company goals & objectives.” We recommend sharing this project with everyone in your company, but you can choose to keep it private to managers if you prefer.
Use sections to categorize the objectives by team, time period, priority level, etc.
File tasks under these sections for specific team goals or objectives. Give each objective a due date to view them all in Calendar View.
Use conversations to check in on progress at a high level and facilitate cross-departmental communication. Managers can quickly see and find work occurring outside of their direct team that still impacts them.
Tips for managing your company objectives project
Store tasks in multiple projects
You can see the same information in different contexts without duplicating efforts. If an overall company goal pertains to a specific project, you can keep the goal in both places to keep efforts focused and show how you’re working towards it.
@mention other people, tasks, and projects by typing @ and the name of the project, task, conversation, or teammate you want to connect. @mentioning tasks and projects give context and show task dependencies. @mentioning stakeholders adds them as followers so they can pose and respond to questions.
