См.: цель.




goal - - The purpose for which the system was created as determined by the owners of the system.

Usage: In addition to a goal, systems have necessary conditions that must be met or the system will not be able to continue to generate goal units now and in the future.

Example: The owners of most for-profit companies identify the goal as "to make more money now and in the future." In addition, they also recognize that it is absolutely necessary that the company satisfy its customers now and in the future and that they must provide a secure and satisfying environment for employees now and in the future or they will be unable to reach the goal. The term "ever-flourishing" is used to describe an organization that performs exceedingly well with respect to both its necessary conditions and its goal.

See:ever-flourishing company, necessary condition.
