Questions This Action Planning Training Course Answers

“How can I get all members of a group to participate in planning a project or event together, and build their commitment and responsibility so that they can successfully implement their plan?”

This course introduces a structured, participatory process to enable the successful implementation of a group project. The ToP Action Planning method uses the ToP Focused Conversation and Consensus Workshop covered in Group Facilitation Methods to engage all members of a group effectively, and so it builds commitment and ownership at all stages. The method is suitable for planning short to medium-term projects or completing projects that have stalled.
