Workplans: A Program Management Tool
We have examined eight recommended components of a workplan—
- Measures of Success
- Time Frame for Assessing Progress
- Team Members Responsible
- Progress Report
We also examined a case study, "Welcome to the Sunflower Program," to guide you through the development of a workplan.
These exercises will help you develop a workplan tailored to the unique resources, needs, and issues within your program. We hope this training has provided you with an opportunity to see how the workplan components link together to form the "big picture" of your BCCEDP workplan.
Your BCCEDP workplan is not a document to be completed and filed away. Rather, the workplan is meant to be flexible and fluid. It is a management tool that should be used and revised (if necessary) on a regular basis to help your program stay on track, make decisions, and operate efficiently and effectively.
