Definition of Goals & Objectives?

By bryanmorison ·
The new PMO has standardized all docs, i.e. status reports, project charters. In the Project Definition Report they have sub-headings for Business Objectives and Project Goals! Is this merely semantics or are there clear and defined differences?

Objectives are typically broad statements of the companies mission in relation to the project.

Goals are specific and measurable events or outcomes of a project.

Your objective would be to produce a report on time and complete.

Your goal would be the specific time the report is do, and how thorough the information is.

Thanks; Can I then assume that I can merely duplicate the proj goals under the sub-heading "Project Deliverables"?
