Straight from wikipedia: Goal Setting involves establishing specific, measurable and time targeted objectives.

This is a point of setting goals which which appear to be failed by teams that fail at agile development. A goal for a devlopment or I guess any business needs to be formulated in a manner which describes the state of things upon completion of the goal.

Following this principle is sometimes quite hard. Lots of the flak tossed at scrum lately can be aimed at the lack of useful goals.

Setting useful goals takes a whole lot of time and when a whole team is working on the problem together people often start showing signs of stress symptoms from feeling of wasting time. However having bad goals is worse than wasting time.
