Assignment Part 7: Development of an Action Plan


An action plan is a well-defined description of a goal to be achieved. It discusses specific changes that need to be done and specific action steps that are needed to bring changes to the organization. The purpose of the action plan is to explain in detail how the chosen strategy in Part 6 will be implemented.

In Part 7 you will write your action plan. First, you will need to include a summary table with the steps of the Action Plan. The table can be found in the Canvas Course. Then, you will need to write a narrative to explain the following information from the summary table:

1.       Action Steps – Different steps that you will need to follow in order to implement the strategy.

2.       Timeline – You need a clear plan to what you want to achieve in this potential implementation. Create a timeline for each action step. The timeline should take place with your organization´s fiscal year (e.g., July 1, 2023 – June 30, 2024).

3.       Roles and Responsibilities – Select the right people to accomplish the right things in the right way. In this section, you will explain the role and responsibilities of each person in this action plan.

4.       Resources – Write about the resources and support that you will need to make the changes that your organization will need during your potential implementation. You need to include both, what is needed and what is available.

5.       Organizational Support – Describe your collaborators or stakeholders of the organization that can potentially support the implementation.

6.       Barriers or resistance – Identify potential barriers or resistance that you may encounter in the process of implementation. Write a plan to overcome them.

7.       Evaluation – Explain how you would evaluate your progress while in route to your goals.

Review SRP current template for additional guidelines regarding the requirement of page length and number of scholarly current sources for this Part.
