Objectives

Objectives

Objectives are concrete statements that describe the things the project is trying to achieve. An objective should be written at a lower level, so that it can be evaluated at the conclusion of a project to see whether it was achieved.

Goal statements are designed to be vague. A well-worded objective will be Specific, Measurable, Attainable/Achievable, Realistic and Time-bound (SMART).

However, SMART is a technique for wording the objective. An objective does not absolutely have to be SMART to be valid.

An example of an objective statement might be to "upgrade the helpdesk telephone system by December 31 to achieve average client wait times of no more than two minutes".

• Note that the objective is much more concrete and specific than the goal statement.
• The objective is measurable in terms of the average client wait times the new phone system is trying to achieve.
• You can assume that the objective is achievable and realistic.
• The objective is time-bound, and should be completed by December 31.

Objectives should refer to the deliverables of the project. In this case, the objective refers to the upgrade of the telephone system. If you cannot determine the deliverables that are created to achieve the objective, the objective may be written at too high a level.

On the other hand, if an objective describes the characteristics of the deliverables, it is written at too low a level. If the statements describe the features and functions, they are requirements, not objectives.

If the project is a part of a larger program, the objectives of all the underlying projects should be in alignment with the program objectives.
