What are project objectives? Looking for project objective examples? Welcome to Bitrix24 – #1 free project objective management software used by over 6 million companies in 186 countries.
First, you’ve got to be smart about project goals and objectives. We mean S.M.A.R.T. So, when you write a project objective, it has to be Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Time-specific. Because Bitrix24 uses SMART methodology for all project management tools, let’s go into details.
Let’s start with a BAD smart project goal example:
Why is it bad? This goal is neither specific nor time-bound. While it is theoretically measurable, realistic and achievable, it’s not clear who has to do what and what you should get in the end. Is 5% a growth or does it have to be 50%?
Now, a GOOD smart project objective example:
Grow revenue by 7% by opening 20 new locations in the North-West within the next 6 months.
So, this project is specific. It states the exact number of revenue growth (7%) and how this project goal is expected to be achieved (opening 20 new locations in the North-West). It’s clearly measurable. It is likely to be achievable and realistic within a given context. Finally, there are time restrictions clearly stated – the project is expected to take 6 months.
