S.M.A.R.T. goal is defined by its five key aspects or elements. Without all aspects, you might be goal setting, but not effectively creating a plan for success. Let’s take a closer look at the five elements of S.M.A.R.T. goals.


Specific goals have a desired outcome that is clearly understood. This might be a sales number or a product rollout goal. No matter what it is, the goal should be clearly articulated so that everyone is on the same page with the objective. Define what will be accomplished and the actions to be taken to accomplish the goal. Goal must be clearly defined —who and what


These are the numbers used with the goal. You need to have a quantifiable objective so that you can track progress. Define what data will be used to measure the goal and set a method for collection. The success toward meeting the goal can be measured. Outcome must demonstrate levels of change or improvement.


Goals need to be realistic in order to maintain the enthusiasm to try to achieve them. Setting lofty goals is good, but you may want to break them down into smaller, bite-sized chunks. If the goal is not doable, you may need to first ramp up resources to give yourself a shot at success. Ramping up resources would likely be its own S.M.A.R.T. goal. Goals are reasonable and can be achieved.


Goals should be aligned with the mission of the company or specific project at hand. Don’t set goals just as an exercise for something to do. One way to determine if the goal is relevant is to define the key benefit to the organization or to your personal goal. The goals are aligned with current tasks and projects and focus in one defined area


Goals should have a deadline. A goal without a deadline doesn’t do much. How can you identify success or failure? This is why S.M.A.R.T. goals set a final date. This doesn’t mean that all the work is done, but it means that you can evaluate the success of the endeavor and set new goals. Goals have a clearly defined time-frame including a target or deadline date.

Using the information presented as a guide create a SMART goal to improve the indicators of your health problem at short or long term [this is the same health problem you will be completing the PowerPoint on]. include a paragraph to introduce your topic and place it in context for your reader. Do not forget to cite your sources.

SMART goals help improve achievement and success. A SMART goal clarifies exactly what is expected and the measures used to determine if the goal is achieved and successfully completed.


Not a SMART goal:

·       Reach out to stakeholders.

Does not identify a measurement or time frame, nor identify why the improvement is needed or how it will be used.

SMART goal:

·      The Department will launch communications with stakeholders by conducting three focus groups specific to needs assessment and funding by the end of the first quarter.

Please ensure you follow the SMART format.
