Goals and objectives are used regularly to define what businesses and individuals would like to achieve, in both the short and the long term. In a business context, these goals generally are required to align to organisational strategy, and thus to the cultures and beliefs of the company. However, at both a personal or professional level, it is imperative that defined goals and objectives are the correct ones for both the organisation and for the individual at that time. Therefore, the process of goal-setting must be meticulous in order to not set goals which are impractical, achievable or even harmful. Hence why the SMART acronym is regularly used to provide a simple but effective framework by which goals can be developed in alignment with individual and organisational culture and values. It is unclear who truly formulated the SMART model, as both Peter Drucker (1955) and George Doran (1991) have both been credited with developing the fundamental ideas behind it. SMART objectives are commonly used by managers and professional coaches to aid in developing individual objectives for employees.
