Goalsetting 3

  1. 1. Let us now have alook at the SMART-formula
  2. 2. Setting Goals – The SMART-Formula In project management you usually have the ultimate project goal as well as intermediate goals (milestones) Respectively there are major goals and minor goals, as well as intermediate goals in your professional career Often we do not reach our goals because they were not clearly defined, we expect too much, or we do not define intermediate goals.
  3. 3. Setting Goals – The SMART-Formula Management sometimes sets very vague goals such as: „we have to improve customer satisfaction, increase profitability, and improve productivity and efficiency.“ With the implementation of „SMART“, goals turn into clear messages that can be measured, reviewed, and monitored which we will see in the next example...
  4. 4. Setting Goals – The SMART-Formula Ultimate- and intermediate goals have to be S.M.A.R.T.:
  5. 5. Setting Goals – The SMART-Formula Ultimate- and intermediate goals have to be S.M.A.R.T.: Specific: Goals must be communicated in a clear way
  6. 6. Setting Goals – The SMART-Formula Ultimate- and intermediate goals have to be S.M.A.R.T.: Specific: Goals must be communicated in a clear way Measurable: You have to be able to decide if you have reached your goal
  7. 7. Setting Goals – The SMART-Formula Ultimate- and intermediate goals have to be S.M.A.R.T.: Specific: Goals must be communicated in a clear way Measurable: You have to be able to decide if you have reached your goal Attainable: It has to be possible to achieve your goal.
  8. 8. Setting Goals – The SMART-Formula Ultimate- and intermediate goals have to be S.M.A.R.T.: Specific: Goals must be communicated in a clear way Measurable: You have to be able to decide if you have reached your goal Attainable: It has to be possible to achieve your goal. Relevant: You have to choose a goal that really matters to you
  9. 9. Setting Goals – The SMART-Formula Ultimate- and intermediate goals have to be S.M.A.R.T.: Specific: Goals must be communicated in a clear way Measurable: You have to be able to decide if you have reached your goal Attainable: It has to be possible to achieve your goal. Relevant: You have to choose a goal that really matters to you Time Bound: Every goals must be set to a specific date
  10. 10. Setting Goals – The SMART-Formula - Example In case of the e-learning your goal might have been formulated like this:„I want to improve my knowledge about pressuremeasurement.“
  11. 11. Setting Goals – The SMART-Formula - Example In case of the e-learning your goal might have been formulated like this:„I want to improve my knowledge about pressuremeasurement.“Do you think this example is SMART ?
  12. 12. Setting Goals – The SMART-Formula - Example„I want to improve my knowledge about pressuremeasurement.“Is it specific?
  13. 13. Setting Goals – The SMART-Formula - Example„I want to improve my knowledge about pressuremeasurement.“Is it specific?No, it‘s not very specific:What exactly do you want to know about pressuremanagement? What are you going to do in order to achieveyour goal?
  14. 14. Setting Goals – The SMART-Formula - Example„I want to improve my knowledge about pressuremeasurement.“Is it measurable?
  15. 15. Setting Goals – The SMART-Formula - Example„I want to improve my knowledge about pressuremeasurement.“Is it measurable?No, it‘s not measurable:You don‘t have defined criteria how much knowledge youwant to achieve. Therefore you don‘t know when you canstop learning.
  16. 16. Setting Goals – The SMART-Formula - Example„I want to improve my knowledge about pressuremeasurement.“Is it attainable?
  17. 17. Setting Goals – The SMART-Formula - Example„I want to improve my knowledge about pressuremeasurement.“Is it attainable?As it is not measurable, you cannot decide whether your goal is attainable.
  18. 18. Setting Goals – The SMART-Formula - Example„I want to improve my knowledge about pressuremeasurement.“Is it relevant?
  19. 19. Setting Goals – The SMART-Formula - Example„I want to improve my knowledge about pressuremeasurement.“Is it relevant?This goal may or may not be relevant for you – we don‘t know. The phrase does not say anything about the reason why you want to improve your knowledge.
  20. 20. Setting Goals – The SMART-Formula - Example„I want to improve my knowledge about pressuremeasurement.“Is it time bound?No. There is absolutely no deadline defined or any other time frame in which you want to improve your knowledge.
  21. 21. Setting Goals – The SMART-Formula - ExampleSo, how can we set a SMART goal in this case? Let‘s try it this way:„I will spend at least 4 hours with the e-learning tool ‚Basics of Pressure Measurement‘ within the next 2 weeks in order to gain 50% more points in the knowledge test after the study. This way I will be more successful when talking to clients.“
  22. 22. Setting Goals – The SMART-Formula - ExampleSo, how can we set a SMART goal in this case? Let‘s try it this way:„I will spend at least 4 hours with the e-learning tool ‚Basics of Pressure Measurement‘ within the next 2 weeks in order to gain 50% more points in the knowledge test after the study. This way I will be more successful when talking to clients.“Specific: Your actions are clearly defined. This way you know exactly what to do.
  23. 23. Setting Goals – The SMART-Formula - ExampleSo, how can we set a SMART goal in this case? Let‘s try it this way:„I will spend at least 4 hours with the e-learning tool ‚Basics of Pressure Measurement‘ within the next 2 weeks in order to gain 50% more points in the knowledge test after the study. This way I will be more successful when talking to clients.“Measurable: You have criteria to test the outcome. Therefore you can decide afterwards whether you have achieved your goal.
  24. 24. Setting Goals – The SMART-Formula - ExampleSo, how can we set a SMART goal in this case? Let‘s try it this way:„I will spend at least 4 hours with the e-learning tool ‚Basics of Pressure Measurement‘ within the next 2 weeks in order to gain 50% more points in the knowledge test after the study. This way I will be more successful when talking to clients.“Attainable: It is possible for you to achieve your goal. This will help you motivate yourself.
  25. 25. Setting Goals – The SMART-Formula - ExampleSo, how can we set a SMART goal in this case? Let‘s try it this way:„I will spend at least 4 hours with the e-learning tool ‚Basics of Pressure Measurement‘ within the next 2 weeks in order to gain 50% more points in the knowledge test after the study. This way I will be more successful when talking to clients.“Relevant: You have a good reason to learn. This will make learning more effective – you will remember things better!
  26. 26. Setting Goals – The SMART-Formula - ExampleSo, how can we set a SMART goal in this case? Let‘s try it this way:„I will spend at least 4 hours with the e-learning tool ‚Basics of Pressure Measurement‘ within the next 2 weeks in order to gain 50% more points in the knowledge test after the study. This way I will be more successful when talking to clients.“Time bound: You already have an exact plan when to do the learning. This will help you avoid procrastination – so you really do what you planned to do.
  27. 27. Setting Goals – The SMART-Formula Please take another look at your goals and check if they are SMART enough. Change your goal setting in order to make them SMART!As a reminder:  Specific  Measurable  Attainable  Relevant  Time Bound
