An objective is a specific step, a milestone, which enables you to accomplish a goal.

Setting right objectives is critical for effective performance management. Corporate intents such as higher profits, shareholder value, and customer satisfaction are not objectives because they don't tell managers what to do. Objectives must specify priorities and focus. They must map the journey ahead towards better solutions.
