|Whats The Difference Between SMART Goals And CLEAR Goals? by dk58(m): 11:13pm On Aug 25|
We’ve all heard of SMART goals but more and more people are wondering which to use in the choice between SMART goals and CLEAR goals. Both acronyms help you create goals for your team that are more measurable and focused, and thus, easier to conceptualize and to achieve. At the same time, there are several key differences that separate them.
SMART STANDS FOR:
Specific – this step means that every goal should be as concrete as possible. What is its purpose? Who is involved? What are the steps? What do you need to complete it?
Measurable – each goal should have a quantifiable outcome. This step helps you ensure you’re using assessable factors to judge if it has been completed. Ask questions like “how much?” and “how many?”
Achievable – You should be able to complete your goal. That means you should be able to do it with the resources, time, and team members you have available.
Relevant – Why are you setting this goal? Does it align with your team’s purpose? Does each individual have a stake in the goal? Does it fit with your team’s culture?
Time-bound – Like “measurable,” your goal should have a timeframe, as well. That means you should determine how long it will take to complete
SMART has become a successful goal-setting acronym because it encourages teams to be reasonable and set external constraints like quantifiable achievement and timeframes.
Still, there are some in the business world who think SMART has reached the limits of its usefulness. They suggest that SMART goals are too fixed, as today’s businesses need to be ever-changing and adaptable.
