Community Change Initiatives (CCI) 6: Planning and Monitoring Progress
The organization works with stakeholders to develop and monitor a results-oriented plan that is based on the findings of the community assessment, and guides the initiative’s activities and projects.
Rather than following a linear path, planning and action often occur simultaneously and interactively throughout the course of an initiative. Accordingly, although planning is an essential part of the improvement process, initial planning need not be exhaustive. Instead of striving to develop an all-encompassing plan before taking any action, some organizations may launch some tangible activities with visible benefits early in the initiative in order to build momentum, keep stakeholders motivated, and increase the likelihood of success.
