Goal-setting by team or Team-setting by goal

I saw an interesting organization chart at a conference today.  Instead of the organization having five different divisions with each division having a goal the chart presented five goals, each of which had a team.  What I like about that concept is that it adds emphasis to the goal and who is responsible and accountable for achieving it.  Too often, no one is personally responsible for the goal.  That can result in the goal not being achieved.  Obliviously, this type chart is not feasible for every organization, but when it makes sense it can be worthwhile.
