What are SMART goals?
SMART goals are used to help guide goal setting. SMART is an acronym that stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timely. Therefore, a SMART goal incorporates all of these criteria to help focus your efforts and increase the chances of achieving your goal.
Using SMART goal methodology allows you to clearly define the goals using these five attributes. PKB recommends that each team creates goals to help them achieve measurable benefits.
SMART goals are:
Specific (simple, sensible, significant)
Measurable (meaningful, measurable outcomes)
Achievable (agreed, achievable for your resource and skills)
Relevant (reasonable, realistic and resourced, results-based)
Time based (time-bound, clear end date for the goal to be achieved)

Reviewing SMART Goals
It's important for the team to review the S.M.A.R.T goals defined at the beginning of the project regularly and in a formalised way every three months. PKB advise that the team book these sessions in advance with the PKB Success Project Manager and the Org Level Clinical engagement lead present.
