What are the key elements of an enabling objective?
According to Hawking 2001, there are four vital key elements for enabling objectives, which are the goal, how that goal was accomplished, the method of evaluation and achievement date. To enlighten, the goal is the end result, or what is to be accomplished. How the goal was accomplished are the procedures that define what have to be done in order to attain that goal.
Evaluation establishes whether or not the goal will be obtained or what steps forward have being made toward goal achievement. Each an every objective has achievement date; this is specific spot in time when the goal will be ready for evaluation.
