Be sure you and your boss agree upon the resources (people, equipment, technology, etc.) you will need to achieve success.
- If the resources are not readily available, negotiate for what you need
- Come to the initial meeting with your boss on goal setting, with your plan as to what resources you will need and how to secure them
- Elicit support from your boss for those resources that are outside your sphere of influence
- Agree on who needs to be kept in the communications loop regarding progress and how often
