SMART objectives

The SMART criteria are a useful set of requirements for setting sensible objectives for organisations. However, when applied to employees I feel that there's something missing: controllable/influencable.

It is possible for an objective to be specific, measurable, attainable (by the organisation/team), relevant and timebound, but not be something that an individual has much control/influence over.

So I propose iSMART: influenceable; specific; measurable; attainable; relevant; timebound.
