Get SMART for better management

SMART stands for the style of project management taught by Francis T. Hartman, Ph.D., in which SM=Strategically Managed, A=Aligned, R=Regenerative work environment, and T=Transitional management. The principles of this style are described in Hartman's book, Don't Park Your Brain Outside: A Practical Guide to Improving Shareholder Value with SMART Management (PMI, 2000). SMART is a holistic view relying on four factors: 1) keeping projects in tune with the organization; 2) minimizing wasted effort; 3) having teams that are effective at work; and 4) not losing sight of the world beyond the project at hand.
