A Management Operating System (MOS) is the tool that translates corporate goals into actions and tracks the organization’s performance. Within the MOS you have three key items that organize your system: Objectives, Goals, and Tasks. These three items work together to create a valuable MOS, and turn your strategy into an agile execution plan.
Objectives: Top-line items that are relevant and dedicated to the improvement or success of the organization’s execution plan and strategy
Goals: What needs to be accomplished by managers, teams, and employees to allow the company objectives to be met/exceeded
Tasks: How we plan to accomplish the goals. What processes and procedures need to be followed or instituted to complete the goal
