Seven-step Project Planning Agenda
Small groups are able to define their project, select appropriate strategic options or approaches, conduct a force-field analysis, and generate activities to accomplish the project. The group will organize the tasks into a timeline and commit to working as a team to successfully complete the project. In addition, a test for reality will assess and identify any barriers to the project and devise contingencies.
Our problem-solving agenda uses a similar approach with brainstorming the issues and problems, identifying likely solutions, prioritizing those likely solutions, and developing a game plan for addressing each solution. The group develops indicators for determining success and adequate problem resolution. Problem solving and project planning are closely related and utilize similar skills and methods.
