The SMART goal framework was developed to focus your larger objectives and break them into achievable pieces. It shows how a seemingly overwhelming task can be accomplished by laying out all the information you need to accomplish it.
For teams, SMART goals also provide an opportunity for transparency and unity around company-wide objectives.
Setting SMART goals begins with the acronym: S — Specific, M — Measurable, A — Achievable, R — Relevant, T — Time-bound.
Setting a SMART goal is one thing, promoting accountability and follow-through is another.
