This chapter deals with contest goals. First, different types of goals are presented together with examples from different contests. Then the activity Set goals is described with guidelines and a running example. This important activity in the pre-contest phase affects and is itself affected by several of the other activities in the approach, such as Engage stakeholders and Design contest. Finally, we suggest further reading on the use of goals to support management.
