      These are not real objectives. Objectives should follow the SMART guideline right?

      If not real, try leaving them for a real project and see the risk. :)

      These are concepts that you can focus your objectives on. For example, The concept of transparency. To ensure transparency throughout the project, the project manager will provide the project team with a project status update by the close of business every Friday starting on Friday April 7, 2017 until the completion of the project on February 1, 2018.
