My business plan
Objectives give the business a clearly defined target. These are plans which can then be made to achieve these targets. This can motivate the employees. It also enables the business to measure the progress towards their stated aims.

The most effective business objectives meet the following criteria: S – Specific – objectives are aimed at what the business does, e.g. a hotel might have an objective of filling 60% of its beds a night during October, an objective specific to that business. M - Measurable – the business can put a value to the objective, e.g. €10,000 in sales in the next half year of trading. A - Agreed by all those concerned in trying to achieve the objective. R - Realistic – the objective should be challenging, but it should also be able to be achieved by the resources available. T- Time specific – they have a time limit of when the objective should be achieved, e.g. by the end of the year.
