planning an action
Planning an action
  • All actions have to be clearly defined- if you can’t explain it in a single sentence it has to be broken into two!
  • If an organisation to support this action this happen doesn’t exist it is unlikely this action will happen- could you plan an action to find one to fill this role?
  • All actions need to be quick to set up
  • All actions need to be low liability
  • All actions need a co-ordinator

  • Need: help them get more referrals
  • Action: identify contacts for organisations in local community who can make referrals
  • Action: contact those organisations to make sure they have referral forms
  • Action: provide referral forms via email or on paper to organisations
  • Action: identify people to perform the above and coordinate between them to achieve these actions
