  • How to write effective, measurable and attainable goals
  • How to develop SMART goals
  • How to determine effective goals
  • How to help teams develop successful goals

Knowing how to set reasonable, measurable and attainable goals is a major step toward success—for individuals as well as teams. Setting goals is not like making New Year’s resolutions—writing down some quick thoughts on a piece of paper and then quickly forgetting them. Setting goals involves thought, consideration and an understanding of how to make goals pertinent, attainable and measurable.

Since many business projects are carried out by teams, the success of a company can often depend on the success of its teams. It is vitally important that teams establish goals to enable their members to work toward team goals and achieve success.
