The Simple Plan Components
All plans differ in their content but to provide a general format, here are some suggested contents:
- Goal—What is it you want to accomplish?
- Objectives/tactics—What actual steps do you have to take to make this goal happen? What actual steps do others have to take to make this goal happen? Who are these people and what will you have to do to inform them of their roles and responsibilities?
- What is the time line for this goal? What is the time line for the objectives and tactics? By when will these things be accomplished?
- What obstacles stand in the way? How can these obstacles be overcome? What help do you need in doing this?
