Evaluation of achievement of strategic goals
In strategic exercises the achievement of (pre-set) goals has to be validated. These are usually related to decision-making processes. Due to a variety of criteria and nuances in conditions for achievement this can pose a challenge to evaluators.
Following solutions could be addressing this gap.
The of strategic exercises are usually focussed on decision-making procedures, requiring in depth-knowledge of expected outcomes and decision-making procedures. As such, of success becomes more complex, as ways to achieve a certain goal are more varied and validation can be more subjective. It is therefore necessary to find tools that support the validation, and create more objective criteria to measure success.
