  • 1. Requirement Excellence Framework™ Business Objectives
  • 2. Business Objectives• Business objectives are specific project success criteria which can be measured.• Business objectives should be SMART. (specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-based)• Well crafted business objectives articulate the bottom-line outcomes the project will deliver for both internal and external stakeholders.• It is important that all stakeholders share a common understanding of the business objectives.• Vague objectives such as “world class” or “killer app” are meaningless unless you can measure whether you have achieved them.• A project that delivers its planned scope and ships on schedule and on budget is good. A project that achieves its intended business objectives is much better. 1
