QUESTION #6: What Is the Plan for This
Program?
(Plan)

Definition of Planning

It is important to have an

ongoing planning document that specifies who will do what, when, and where. Planning issues can be relevant at a larger level (e.g., county plan) and/or at a smaller level (e.g., planning a specific program). This GTO-04 question has tools that can assist practitioners to plan their programs well so that they can be implemented with all of the necessary ingredients for a good program.

A plan is …

a roadmap for your activities that will facilitate systematic implementation of a program.


Why Is Good Program Planning Important?

Although planning takes time away from program activities, the tools in this section are designed to assist you to remember all of the necessary details to implement a quality program. Good planning can improve implementation, which in turn, can lead to improved outcomes. Just like a “to do” list used to organize tasks; these tools provide a straightforward method to plan your program. Just think about what it takes to build a house—all of the planning and checklists that are necessary to go through BEFORE hammering the first nail. If all of the parts are completed, it will be much more likely that you will achieve the desired outcomes.


How Do You Plan a Program?

GTO-04 prompts you to consider all the critical ingredients of a good plan. Use the planning tool below to plan your programs. The planning tool can be found in Appendix 6A.
