Change Management expert, Marianne Carlson, uses the acronym S.I.M.P.L.E. to help leaders understand and remember some important attributes of any goals for major organizational change.
Orlando, Florida (PRWEB) January 10, 2013
In the latter part of the 20th century, leadership development experts touted the value of setting S.M.A.R.T. goals. The acronym stood for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely (or some variation on that theme). But in 2013, Change Management guru, Marianne Carlson suggests a different approach for setting goals for organizational change. She recommends leaders concentrate on setting S.I.M.P.L.E. goals.
“The SMART goal formula is still helpful, especially when setting personal goals,” Carlson explains, “but organizational goals require a more complex strategy that takes the SMART formula and adds some new criteria.” According to Carlson, organizational goals should indeed be specific, measureable, attainable, realistic and timely, but there are other attributes that must be considered when setting goals that affect an entire organization. She uses the acronym S.I.M.P.L.E. to help leaders understand and remember the following important attributes of any goals for major organizational change.
