But the SMART abbreviation might come from something like that, don't know.

I believe that SMART is some sort of Human Resources industry acronym (I could be wrong of course :). We have the same thing in our yearly goal plans, or something along those lines.

    I first heard this acronym on international project management course. There ti was defined somewhat different:
    • Specific and clearly defined by the client
    • Measurable
    • Achievable
    • Result Oriented
    • Time Related
    Back there, words without additional description where enough to describe what each of objectives mean. They where guidelines. Than again, this was project management course and there where people from HR deparment on that course also.

    Guidelines should help and not become measurement tool.
