    Measures intended to achieve an aim.

    Although "aim" sounds a bit foreign here, I would say:

    We implemented measures to achieve a goal.

    I agree that using "goal" sounds much better but to say "We implemented" implies that these measures have already been made, whereas "measures intended to achieve a goal" sounds closer to what he wanted to say.
