When creating SMART Goals, consider the following..
1. Relevance - Is the goal relevant to the strategic direction? Does it apply to the strategic direction in our specific area? Will it help to move Saddleback College into a positive direction?
2. Improvement - What is the "improvement" that we are seeking by the end of the three year strategic planning cycle?
Formula for creating SMART goal s...
1. Use active words such as...Increase, Achieve, Improve, Enhance, Strengthen
2. Include measurement in time and percentage - "by when" and "by how much"
Note: At some point, we must establish a baseline as a way to evaluate the success of each goal.
