Action Plan Now that you have defined your goals, objectives, strategies and tactics – your last step in the planning process is to focus on your action plan. An action plan defines who is going to be responsible for seeing that each strategy is achieved, and a timeline for achieving the strategy. In this process, you will be documenting accountability for implementation. With accountability comes the necessity for reasonable timelines. Assigning tasks without a reasonable amount of time may in fact sabotage the planning implementation effort. Making sure that those assigned accountability are also empowered with resources (money, equipment, and people) and authority to follow through are critical. Likewise, it should be remembered that unless key personnel charged with implementing a strategy are pulled from their existing position, they will continue to have other daily responsibilities. You will need to balance day-to-day job functions along with how you will make assignments for the implementation of the plan. When you developed your objectives, you were asked to also think of timeframes for reaching those objectives (weeks, months, years) – these will provide a starting point for developing your timeline for your action plan. The format for your action plan will depend on the type of organization you are working with. What follows is an example for communicating your action plan.
