About the Team:

FOR EXAMPLE: "The product Designer will deliver a creative experience that educates members about our products and how they will impact their lives..." As you think about this role, define 3 SMART goals (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-bound) that this role needs to deliver over the next 6-12 months. Concisely describe the deliverables and the measurable results that would indicate progress is being made or the objectives are achieved. This will give you a head-start on your Objectives conversations with the new hire.)
