Accelerated Action Planning Online

Description:  Accelerated Action Plan Online is designed for engaging small teams in creating action plans online.  Through this process, teams of 10 or fewer, use predesigned templates that guide the participatory process in creating the plan and coordinating their efforts. Class participants are given a set of templates following the class.  AAP is best suited to small projects that can be implemented in less that six months.

This training provides the process, templates, and tools to quickly organize a group or small team to develop a workable plan to accomplish a specific objective that has been already been approved in concept. Participants learn to energize and align a team toward a common goal in the time it takes to have a regular staff meeting. Includes all the practical details to ensure a successful project. This process is especially useful for small teams of 4 – 10 members who are planning a project within the next few days, weeks, or months. The process is perfect for planning either a project or an event. Projects should be tangible and specific. This might include an event, a work project, formation of a team, writing a report, or developing a grant proposal.
