EXAMINE THE SMART FRAMEWORK FOR GOAL SETTING.

ASSIGNMENT DUE BY SATURDAY (DO NOT COPY AND PASTE ANYTHING PLEASE)

ESTABLISHING SMART GOALS

Employee and organizational development is not only achieved through performance evaluations. A more proactive way of improving performance is to identify and work toward specific goals. One of the most popular methods of targeting goals is the SMART method, a mnemonic for the elements of effective goal setting. This method mandates the identification of goals that are specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and time-bound.
In this Assignment, you will examine the SMART framework for goal setting. You then will apply that framework to one of your own long-term professional goals.
To prepare for this Assignment:

Review the Learning Resources on SMART Goals. How is this method effective in a diverse array of goal-setting situations?
Identify a long-term professional goal of your own and consider how you could use the SMART framework to expand and define your goal.

To complete this Assignment, write a 1- to 2-page paper in which you define a long-term professional goal and develop a plan for attaining that goal. Address the following:

Compare your current or recent position in an organization to which you currently belong (or have belonged) to the position that you would like to achieve 5 to 10 years from now.
Using the SMART framework, determine five goals for reaching your objective of attaining this ideal position.
Evaluate how each of your goals will contribute to your professional development.
