Why SMART Goals

Strategic Planning

Goals provide us with a sense of direction and motivate us to complete the task at hand. SMART Goals, by their definition, are specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and timely and are a useful tool for a staff members’ performance development. They can also be helpful in focusing a work team to move projects forward.

Learning Objectives:
  • Dive into what SMART Goals are
  • How to create SMART goals
  • Explore alternatives for instances when SMART Goals may not be an effective measurement tool
