Times have changed, but some people still cling to their worn but time proven paper calendars (desk size or other size). Modern technology has helped us by giving us more tools, but too many tools can be really time consuming and sometimes we get caught up in the tools and not the end result. My question to the experts here on Clarity is how each of you track goal achievement and stay on track in this new age of technology? Michael T.

A ton. The quantified self is just starting to creep into the enterprise world. Traditional project management tools are morphing into data machines that turn out our goals and accomplishments.
I agree completely with your assertion about being caught up in the tool not the result. I think it is early days for some of these products. They are still evolving and becoming simpler. For whatever reason enterprise products have evolved a bit more slowly than consumer counterparts. Products like FitBit are unbelievable consumer tools to help track goals/achievements around health. We will be seeing more and more of these tools for enterprise.
To answer your question personally: Our team uses GitHub, Teambox, and RelateIQ to collect data about our goals and achievements. We then feed those data pipes into a homebrew solution built around individual projects. We use the OKR system for goal management, which we power with the data mentioned above.
