Step 2 Target Goals
"At the organizational level, we typically examine high-level strategic goals like being the low cost provider, maintaining a high level of customer satisfaction, or meeting projected revenue or profit margin target. At the project level, we typically look at goals that emphasize project management and control issues or project level requirements and objectives. These goals typically reflect the project success factors like on time delivery, finishing the project within budget or delivering software with the required level of quality or performance. At the specific task level, we consider goals that emphasize task success factors. Many times these are expressed in terms of the entry and exit criteria for the task."

Step 5 Standardize Definitions
"When we use terms like defect, problem report, size, and even project, other people will interpret these words in their own context with meanings that may differ from our intended definition. These interpretation differences increase when more ambiguous terms like quality, maintainability, and user-friendliness are used."
