O.3.3 Work Plan

Action

Establish and/or strengthen annual workplan based on strategic plan.

Why

Work plans, derived from the strategic plan, involve actionable items and tasks to be carried out by organizational staff and volunteers.  Results from successfully carried out work plans can be quantified and demonstrated to display positive impacts towards achieving organizational goals.

How

The organizational strategic plan crafted by the board contains goals, strategies and action items.  Work plans result from the action items.  Each work plan needs to include tasks, a timeline, who will carry out the tasks, expected results, and what, if any, budget is required.
