Notes
1
“We trained hard … but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams we would be reorganized. … I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganizing; and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency, and demoralization” (attributed to Petronius Arbiter, 210 B. C.).

See Chapter 1. SMARRT objectives are specific, measurable, acceptable, realistic, results oriented, and time specific.
