2.4 Planning

After the building stage you will plan the programme of activities in which you and your partner/s will engage. This will probably involve project planning activities such as specifying timeframes, identifying key personnel and their roles, budgeting, and monitoring and evaluation. One partner will lead, taking overall ownership of project management. They should work with other partners to make sure that all the schedules and budgets are synchronised so that the plan is achievable for everyone. It is often helpful to build a communication plan at this stage to make sure that all partners receive and share the right pieces of information at the right time.
