Planning for Action
Planning is an essential function for high performance teams. We plan in team meetings, when working with customers and vendors, when solving problems and when figuring out how to get through the day. You may find that certain methods, steps or techniques described here will not fit every situation you face as a team. At times you may need a simpler, more efficient process. At other times, you may need additional steps and more detail. What is presented here should be used as a model that can be adapted, expanded or simplified in whatever way makes most sense for your team in a given situation. Two of the main reasons for planning projects are to focus the team's energy and increase involvement and commitment.
