Introduction To Effectiveness Planning
In order for individuals and businesses to continuously improve it is important that they have an effectiveness plan. Frequently referred to as a strategic plan, an effectiveness plan is a framework to build for the future and it aligns mission and goals with resource utilization for the attainment of desired outcomes. Throughout the effectiveness planning process, outcomes assessment plays a vital role and provides objective information that can be used to make decisions and to evaluate the progress being made toward the attainment of defined goals.
Institutions of higher education and corporations spend a considerable amount of time developing and implementing effectiveness plans. Many individuals and small businesses, however, either do not participate in the effectiveness planning process or only take part at the most basic level (e.g., setting goals). The reasons for this lack or partial use of effectiveness plans and the accompanying process usually center on: (a) cost, (b) availability and use of valued resources, and (c) knowledge base to develop and implement the plan.
