“Start Smart” is about setting the stage for success when you begin a new initiative.

The key to Starting Smart is CLARITY about WHAT you’re aiming to achieve, WHY it’s important, and HOW you will proceed.

• Clarity about WHAT you’re aiming to achieve begins with the GOALS and the timeframes for achieving them. It also includes the scope, the issues that are included and excluded.

• Clarity about WHY it’s important is the key to gaining commitment and motivation. It explains the value of the “What” for the organization and for the participants personally.

• Clarity about HOW you will proceed is essential since you need to know how to do something in order to do it. It’s the roadmap that allows you to get to work.

When everyone is clear about the What, Why, and How, people tend to move with confidence, speed, and effectiveness.
