The first person who used the achronimus SMART to define a methodology for checking a project and its relative objectives was Peter Drucker, the Business Strategy Guru, into his famous book of 1954 “The practice of Management”.  In the book he talked deeply about the Management by Objectives (how to plan and monitor the objectives) and introduced the “SMART” method to control the validity of its.

According to him SMART means :

S => Specific
M => Measurable
A => Achievable
R => Realistic
T => Time-related

When you think you get a solution to a problem or a challenge, according to Peter Drucker,  try to pass the scrutiny of the SMART method: if it does not pass the exam, work on the weak points to improve it and then ... when it’s finally unassailable, it's time to put it into practice.

We like to think that the OKI Project SMART MDS is a son of  Drucker’s school of thought !...
