The Four Steps to Identifying and Documenting Your Action Plan

The Four Steps to Identifying and Documenting Your Action Plan

  1. Remind yourself of the relevant definitions (resources, actions and outputs) and check the infographic if you need help. 

  2. Use your summary of outcomes with attributes and assumptions (See Plan - Step 2) as a checklist to ensure that you consider all the factors involved in the achievement of each outcome. 

  3. Identify activities to achieve immediate outcomes. In most cases, your immediate outcomes will lead to the achievement of intermediate outcomes and intermediate outcomes will eventually lead to impact. For each activity (or cluster of activities) identify the outputs that you will be producing and the resources that you will need for completion.

  4. Document this in the programme representation model that works for you. See Important Things to Know in Representing Your Action Plan for more information.

Remember to have a look at some of the resources provided in the toolbox to assist you with the representaton of your action plan.  We also provide a template for a logframe table.
