Management Question

Goals are important, whether you are hoping to lose weight or build a business. However, just having some goals is not enough. We must evaluate those goals to verify they are designed to meet the intended objective. While we are evaluating goals, we need to ensure any of our goals are not in conflict with other goals. For example, if our goal is to lose weight but we have another goal to learn to bake desserts, we may have a conflict. We must also make sure what we listed as a goal is not really just a wish. A goal to retire rich is just a wish if there is no plan to go with the goal. It becomes a goal when we create a concrete but flexible plan for getting there.
This week we will evaluate the goals of a healthcare organization. Remember to look for the characteristics of a SMART goal, being specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound.
