Goals promote planning to determine how goals will be achieved.
Employees often set goals in order to satisfy a need; thus, goals can be motivational and increase performance.
Evaluation and control allows an organization to compare its actual performance to its goals and then make any necessary adjustments.
When an organization anticipates problems given its situation and goals, it is able to ensure that the resources necessary for resolving the issues already are in place.
This means the organization can deal with a problem more quickly and minimize its impact.
