Short term goals are planning mechanisms, expressed as both literal goals for a short term period and as goals within a period defined by long term goals. They contain their own 'in house' planning for their achievement. Short term goals are often used as structural elements in strategic planning, the 'tactical' level of functional operations. Short term goals are usually staged processes in larger planning procedures, creating a working structure in well defined parts. They operate as a series of logical steps in these contexts.
Examples of Short Term Goals:
Staged education levels|
Five year economic plans
Segmentation of stages of business plans
Career goal stages
