Develop Program Timeline

photo of a woman writing in a notebookThe program timeline is a way for you to keep track of what needs to be done with each activity. Keep the timeline as flexible as possible to allow for mid-course modifications that arise after you start implementing the program. As you develop the timeline, be realistic about

  • All tasks and activities that will be involved with planning, implementing, and evaluating.
  • Start and completion dates.
  • Major deadlines and who is responsible for meeting deadlines.
  • Any internal or external review processes that have to take place before you can move forward.
