SO…..LETS BE SMART ABOUT THIS….. SMART is an acronym for: Specific Measurable Attainable Realistic Timely What does this mean?
SPECIFIC No generalizations Clear, definite, and not vague Determine: Team Expectations Goal importance Involvement Where will happen? Key Attributes Ask Yourself 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.
MEASURABLE Helps create a timeline of events Set milestones Shows progress toward completion Helps a team stay on track Adjust as needed A measurable goal will answer questions such as: How much? How many? How will I know when it is accomplished? Indicators should be quantifiable
ATTAINABLE May stretch team limits, but not extreme Not below standard or out of reach Meaningful Start with those most important Develop the attitudes, abilities, skills, etc… to reach your goal An attainable goal will usually answer the question: How: How can the goal be accomplished?
REALISTIC Find a goal that matters – relevance Aligned with other goals Find support: Resources Advocates 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?
TIMELY Deadline commitment Plan ahead Delegate A time-bound goal will usually answer the question: When? What can I do six months from now? What can I do six weeks from now? What can I do today?
