Setting Smart Goals for SharePoint Productivity

The acronym SMART has several slightly different variations, which can be used to provide a more comprehensive definition of goal setting: S - specific, significant, stretching. M - measurable, meaningful, motivational. A - agreed upon, attainable, achievable, acceptable, action-oriented.


  • What do I want to accomplish using our Intranet?
  • Why do I want to accomplish this?
  • What are the requirements? (time & licensing costs)
  • What are the constraints? (internal training, bandwidth, integration points)


  • How will I measure my progress?
  • How will I know when the goal is accomplished?


  • How can the goal be accomplished?
  • What are the logical steps I should take?


  • Is this a worthwhile goal?
  • Is this the right time?
  • Do I have the necessary resources to accomplish this goal? (think support & training)
  • Is this goal in line with our long term objectives?


  • How long will it take to accomplish this goal?
  • When is the completion of this goal due?
  • When am I going to work on this goal?
