S.M.A.R.T.
OBJECTIVES
S.M.A.R.T
An accountability is a statement about normal work
output… a clearly defined and established on-going
responsibility or requirement of a job. Accountabilities and
associated supporting activities are found on the position
description. They describe what the person in that position
is responsible for regularly producing or providing – i.e.,
what are the normal expected outcomes of the position.
A goal is a general statement about a desired outcome with
one or more specific objectives that define in precise terms
what is to be accomplished within a designated time frame.
A goal may be performance-related, developmental, a
special project, or some combination.
DIFFERENTIATING BETWEEN A
GOAL AND AN ACCOUNTABILITY:
A performance goal is usually linked to an
accountability and could involve problem-solving,
innovation, or implementation of some type of
improvement.
A developmental goal may serve to enhance
performance in the current role (greater depth of
knowledge/skills) or prepare for a new or future
role.
Special projects could include a “stretch”
assignment (build experience), be based on the
departmental plan, or meet a particular
organizational need.
TYPES OF PERFORMANCE,
DEVELOPMENTAL , AND SPECIAL
PROJECT GOALS:
Goals should describe accomplishments, not
activities. First, let’s look at what the
S.M.A.R.T. acronym means…
S = Specific
M = Measurable
A = Achievable
R = Relevant
T = Time
S.M.A.R.T. GOALS
Goal objectives should address the five Ws…
who, what, when, where, and why. Make sure
the goal specifies what needs to be done with
a timeframe for completion. Use action
verbs… create, design, develop, implement,
produce, etc. Example: resolve accounting
discrepancies within 48 hours.
SPECIFIC
Goal objectives should include numeric or
descriptive measures that define quantity, quality,
cost, etc. How will you and your staff member
know when the goal has been successfully met?
Focus on elements such as observable actions,
quantity, quality, cycle time, efficiency, and/or
flexibility to measure outcomes, not activities.
Example: secure pledges from ten new donors by
the end of each week.
MEASURABLE
Goal objectives should be within the staff
member’s control and influence; a goal may
be a “stretch” but still feasible. Is the goal
achievable with the available resources? Is the
goal achievable within the timeframe
originally outlined? Consider authority or
control, influence, resources, and work
environment support to meet the goal.
Example: obtain the XYZ professional
certification within two years.
ACHIEVABLE
Goals should be instrumental to the mission of
the department (and ultimately, the institution).
Why is the goal important? How will the goal
help the department achieve its objectives?
Develop goals that relate to the staff member’s
key accountabilities or link with departmental
goals that align with the institutional agenda.
Example: develop and implement a diversity
recruitment plan that increases the number of
diversity candidates by ten percent.
RELEVANT
Goal objectives should identify a definite target date
for completion and/or frequencies for specific
action steps that are important for achieving the
goal. How often should the staff member work on
this assignment? By when should this goal be
accomplished? Incorporate specific dates, calendar
milestones, or timeframes that are relative to the
achievement of another result (i.e., dependencies
and linkages to other projects). Example: check the
fire alarms and emergency lighting in all buildings
every six months.
TIME
For an organization or department…
Not SMART “Improve our student service.”
SMART “Achieve and maintain an average
student service rating of at least 4.0 (out of a
possible 5.0) on our annual survey by
11/20/08.”
LET’S LOOK AT SOME MORE
EXAMPLES :
For an exempt staff member…
Not SMART “Create our 2008 strategic plan.”
SMART “Create our 2008 strategic plan, obtain final
approval from the Budget Committee, and discuss it with
our department so individuals can begin setting their
performance objectives by 8-29-07.”
Not SMART “Improve project management skills.”
SMART “Take the Project Management Essentials
workshop on 10-18-2007, report what was learned to our
team by 11-01-2007, and apply the relevant concepts while
implementing our 2008 marketing plan.”
LET’S LOOK AT SOME MORE
EXAMPLES :
For a nonexempt staff member…
Not SMART “Send out welcome letters to our new students.”
SMART “Produce and distribute personalized welcome letters,
error free, to all new students in our department by 9-26-07.”
Not SMART “Be more receptive to coaching suggestions and
feedback.”
SMART “At our monthly progress meetings, ask for feedback
on what you are doing well and what things to improve. Keep a
notebook with this information, try out the suggestions, and
document each week what worked and what didn’t.”
LET’S LOOK AT SOME MORE
EXAMPLES :
For an exempt or nonexempt staff member…
Not SMART “Keep our department’s Website up-
to-date.”
SMART “Solicit updates and new material for the
Website from our department managers on the first
Friday of each month; publish this new material by
the following Friday. Each time material is
published, review the Website for material that is
out-of-date and delete or archive that material.”
LET’S LOOK AT SOME MORE
EXAMPLES :
Remember the S.M.A.R.T. acronym
when establishing goals and objectives.
This formula for goal-setting helps
ensure that both supervisors and staff
members share the same understanding
and clarity on goals set during the
performance management cycle.

S.M.A.R.T. objectives

  • 2. An accountability is a statement about normal work output… a clearly defined and established on-going responsibility or requirement of a job. Accountabilities and associated supporting activities are found on the position description. They describe what the person in that position is responsible for regularly producing or providing – i.e., what are the normal expected outcomes of the position. A goal is a general statement about a desired outcome with one or more specific objectives that define in precise terms what is to be accomplished within a designated time frame. A goal may be performance-related, developmental, a special project, or some combination. DIFFERENTIATING BETWEEN A GOAL AND AN ACCOUNTABILITY:
  • 3. A performance goal is usually linked to an accountability and could involve problem-solving, innovation, or implementation of some type of improvement. A developmental goal may serve to enhance performance in the current role (greater depth of knowledge/skills) or prepare for a new or future role. Special projects could include a “stretch” assignment (build experience), be based on the departmental plan, or meet a particular organizational need. TYPES OF PERFORMANCE, DEVELOPMENTAL , AND SPECIAL PROJECT GOALS:
  • 4. Goals should describe accomplishments, not activities. First, let’s look at what the S.M.A.R.T. acronym means… S = Specific M = Measurable A = Achievable R = Relevant T = Time S.M.A.R.T. GOALS
  • 5. Goal objectives should address the five Ws… who, what, when, where, and why. Make sure the goal specifies what needs to be done with a timeframe for completion. Use action verbs… create, design, develop, implement, produce, etc. Example: resolve accounting discrepancies within 48 hours. SPECIFIC
  • 6. Goal objectives should include numeric or descriptive measures that define quantity, quality, cost, etc. How will you and your staff member know when the goal has been successfully met? Focus on elements such as observable actions, quantity, quality, cycle time, efficiency, and/or flexibility to measure outcomes, not activities. Example: secure pledges from ten new donors by the end of each week. MEASURABLE
  • 7. Goal objectives should be within the staff member’s control and influence; a goal may be a “stretch” but still feasible. Is the goal achievable with the available resources? Is the goal achievable within the timeframe originally outlined? Consider authority or control, influence, resources, and work environment support to meet the goal. Example: obtain the XYZ professional certification within two years. ACHIEVABLE
  • 8. Goals should be instrumental to the mission of the department (and ultimately, the institution). Why is the goal important? How will the goal help the department achieve its objectives? Develop goals that relate to the staff member’s key accountabilities or link with departmental goals that align with the institutional agenda. Example: develop and implement a diversity recruitment plan that increases the number of diversity candidates by ten percent. RELEVANT
  • 9. Goal objectives should identify a definite target date for completion and/or frequencies for specific action steps that are important for achieving the goal. How often should the staff member work on this assignment? By when should this goal be accomplished?
