The key to overcoming common project challenges is to set specific goals.
S.M.A.R.T. goals are designed to provide structure and guidance throughout a project, to help you better identify what you want to accomplish. This method is especially effective in helping employees set goals that align with company.
Once you have planned your project, turn your attention to developing several goals that will enable you to be successful. Goals should be SMART – specific, measurable, agreed upon, realistic and time-based.
A goal might be to hold a weekly marketing campaign with the key members of your team or to organise and run a continuous test programme throughout the project.
The acronym SMART has several slightly different variations, which can be used to provide a more comprehensive definition of goal setting:
S – specific, significant, stretching
M – measurable, meaningful, motivational
A – attainable, agreed upon, attainable, achievable, acceptable, action-oriented
R – realistic, relevant, reasonable, rewarding, results-oriented
T – timely, time-based, time-bound, tangible, trackable
This broader definition at Real Estate Trainer will help you to be successful in both your business and personal life.
When you write S.M.A.R.T. goals, you’ll find that having some clarity about what you want to achieve can make all the difference between success and failure.
