Quotes: Objective.

Objective 24 "The objective of the Defense Department was clear to me from the start: To defend the nation at minimal risk and minimal cost, and, whenever we got into combat, with minimal loss of life." McNamara’s In Retrospect. The second part of objectives is that they must be measurable. One of my fatal mistakes in writing curriculum.

Objectives 329 "Such a general formulation of our objectives is not sufficient [re Clinton’s: 'Our overriding purpose must be to expand and strengthen the world’s community of market-based democracies']." McNamara’s In Retrospect. Levels of objectives. From broad to memorable stimulus for action. From"...expand community of market-based democracies" to "convert Vietnam to a market-based democracy."
