Priorities, timetables and budgets

Introducing the links between objectives and activities.

When working it quickly becomes apparent that we cannot do everything at once and we therefore need to consider how to set priorities. In this step we introduce the links between objectives and activities. This represents step 4 in the planning cycle, where planners make practical decisions on time and money as part of the planning strategy.

As you watch, think about the following questions:

  • What practical considerations for prioritisation are suggested in the presentation?

  • Why should a named person be made responsible for each activity?
