Let’s look at some examples:
Not SMART - “Improve project management skills.”
SMART - “Take the Project Management Essentials workshop on 10-18-2010, report what was learned to my team by 11-01-2010 and apply the relevant concepts while implementing my 2010 marketing plan.”
Not SMART - "Be more receptive to coaching suggestions and feedback."
SMART - “At my monthly progress meetings, ask for feedback on what I am 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.”
