Planning is vital to achieving goals. The challenge before leaders is developing the right plan.
We must answer several questions.
What goal are we trying to reach?
Why is this goal important to the overall program, or is it?
Who will carry out the plan?
Are adequate resources available for each stage of the plan? If not, can they be obtained?
When will we evaluate the progress?
How can we achieve maximum involvement?
Once the goal is reached, where do we go from that point?
Answering these questions provides the right foundation for the proper plans.
