    Management by Objectives (MBO)

    This method aims to identify and closely align organizational goals and subordinate
    objectives throughout the organization. Ideally, employees get strong input
    to identify their own goals and objectives. It includes extensive, ongoing tracking
    and feedback in the processes to reach objectives. Similar to continuous improvement,
    many organizations already implement some version of MBO, but probably not to
    the extent that experts in MBO would recognize as MBO in the organizations.
