Tips for Writing Good Goals and Objectives

Make sure goals and objectives tie directly to the need statement. This is critical.
Include all relevant parties in the target population.
Allow plenty of time for the objectives to be accomplished. Things always take longer than planned.
Remember that outcome objectives do not describe methods. Collaborating with the community clinics within the service area of the Some City Senior Center is a method. Stabilizing the blood sugar levels of a minimum of seventy-five monolingual Spanish-speaking seniors for three consecutive months is an outcome objective, as it describes the result of a method.
Determine how your organization is going to measure the change projected in each objective.
