management by objectives

(MBO)
 Management technique of setting goals and then reviewing performance against them.
 ► “On the one hand, MBO is seen as a traditional management tool which forms part of the foundation of effective public management, while at the same time it is viewed by others as being out of date, ineffectual, and inconsistent with contemporary management and thought practices.” (Public Administration Review, Jan.– Feb. 1995, p. 48)
