Management by objectives (MBO) is a management theory introduced by Peter Drucker in his 1954 book, “The Practice of Management.” MBOs improve organizational performance by defining objectives agreed to by both management and employees. According to its time tested principles, having a say in goal setting and action plans encourages participation and commitment among employees, and aligns objectives across the organization.
