Limitations of Management by objectives:



  1. The MBO approach is too pressure-oriented and time consuming.
  2. Participation of the subordinates in goal-setting is the corner-stone of MBO. But this may not be feasible in every organisation.
  3. MBO requires the setting of verifiable goals. But it is difficult to set verifiable goals.
  4. MBO will be successful only if the objectives are set in measurable and verifiable terms. If the objectives cannot be set in quantitative terms, it will be difficult to judge the performance of the individuals.
  5. The MBO approach over-emphasises quantification. Therefore, it is likely to overlook the qualitative aspects of the performance of the organisation.
