Most of us have come across the acronym SMART when developing goals or making plans, but how many of us have made these goals and plans SMARTER?
So often our life or business goals are not sufficiently specific or measurable and many do not have an ‘achieve by’ timeline all of which are critical to achieving those goals. Even if these elements are all in place, we often fail to measure whether we are on track to achieve or have achieved the desired goals. This is where the ER in SMARTER comes in.
We use this approach in our Knowledge into Action workshop and MECC course for Health Champions where they are applied to healthier lifestyle goal setting. Our Business Development Programme course, Planning for Growth, also explores and supports the effective use of SMARTER goal setting when creating a business plan.
What gets measured, gets done!
