Wondering How You Can SMARTen Up Your Objectives For Your Staff Training Plan?

Posted by Sarah Lindner on February 4, 2015

SMART objectives

Both employee and manager have to be as precise as possible when defining where the path is going. A proven method is phrasing SMART objectives.

What are SMART objectives?

SMART objectives were first introduced by George T. Doran, meaning they should be Specific, Measurable, Assignable, Realistic and Time-bound.

How to make it actionable:

Always ensure to have these 3 components when defining an objective:

- an action verb,

- the object of the action verb

- and the measure. 

For example: "Improve your English to a B1 fluency level within the next six weeks."

(To highlight the implication, here the bad example: "Your English is not good enough, you should work on it.")


Clear expectations when working with objectives is key.
