Transcript of Get S.M.A.R.T

Get S.M.A.R.T This means the goal is clear and unambiguous; without vagaries and platitudes. If a goal is not measurable, it is not possible to know whether a team is making progress toward successful completion Are the goals that are realistic and attainable. Relevant goals (when met) drive the team, department, and organization forward. A goal
that supports or is in alignment with other goals would be considered a relevant goal. This part of the S.M.A.R.T. goal criteria is intended to prevent goals from being overtaken by the day-to-day crises that invariably arise in an organization A specific goal will usually answer the five "W" questions:

What: What do I want to accomplish?

Why: Specific reasons, purpose or benefits of accomplishing the goal.

Who: Who is involved?

Where: Identify a location.

Which: Identify requirements and constraints. An attainable goal will usually answer the question:

How can the goal be accomplished?

Are the goals realistic and attainable?

Do I have the attitudes, abilities, skills and financial capacity to reach the goal?

How will I know if I have reached my goals? A relevant goal can answer yes to these questions:

Does this seem worthwhile?

Is this the right time?

Does this match our other efforts/needs?

Are you the right person? A time-bound goal will usually answer the question:


What can I do 6 months from now?

What can I do 6 weeks from now? A measurable goal will usually answer questions such as:

How much?

How many?

They are poorly defined and are not attainable

They Lack a “buy in” from participants

They set-up conflicts between organizational members

They lack sufficient resources to be attained.

They lack effective communication between parties Why focus on SMART Method? Successful organizational goals will:

Create desired results

Provide opportunities to remove current barriers to success
