Implementing Quarterly Planning and RAPs To Take Your Work to a Higher Level
Most departments plan their work annually, at most, and then stay in reactive mode and “firefight” throughout the year. These days, it’s more effective to plan 3-6 months ahead while connecting your work to goals that support a larger strategic vision. Planning quarterly and implementing RAPs (Review, Assess, Plan) will allow you to create momentum to Review your progress and lessons learned, Assess your results and the strength of your action plans, and Plan your goals and next steps. While quarterly planning and RAP’s take more time on the front end, they ultimately help you and your department accomplish the work that is most meaningful and provides the biggest ROI. Leave this session feeling capable of implementing the structure to build a bigger, more substantive body of work.
