    • Measurable
    • Attainable
    • Realistic
    • Timely
smart goals
  • Specific goals and objectives include who will be targeted and what will be accomplished.
  • Measurable goals and objectives include how much change is expected, specifically enough that achievement of the objective can be measured through counting or documenting change.
smart goals1
  • Achievable goals and objectives can be realistically accomplished given your program’s existing resources and constraints.
  • Realistic goals and objectives address the scope of the health problem and propose reasonable programmatic steps.
  • Time-phased goals and objectives provide a timeline indicating when the objective will be met.
