You would need the name of objective, how you are going to measure it, type of data used to measure (if any) or whether it is subjective assessment, how often to set milestones, what the milestone targets should be, what is the overall target.
Also, what action plans are you putting in place to achieve the objective. You can choose to track progress against this objective by imputing data yourself, uploading a spreadsheet, or connecting it directly to a business system using Web Services.
