Our organisation has come across a problem. We have been using asana quite well, utilising projects as permanent fixtures within teams. For example, our sales team would have a ‘hubspot upkeep’ project with tasks in there that contain tweaks we need to make to our CRM.
Now, though, we want to start using goals. Our definition of success is having our employees know that the tasks they do within projects directly contribute to the success of the company. Keeping our CRM hygiene is a boring task, but if it can be attributed to an ‘increase sales’ goal, which can be attributed to a ‘company revenue’ goal, that would be a great motivator for employees.
The only problem is that goal progress is a function of milestones or tasks completed within projects, and that can’t be measured if the projects are never completed, or don’t have a ‘finish date’ - they’re just used as task categorisation devices.
