Clearly articulating our group’s vision, objectives and action plans is essential if we are to be effective in achieving our aims. Many of you will recall that the Steering Committee members (Karen Alpert, Caroline Day and myself) have long been working on a Strategy Roadmap document, as previous discussed in a number of blog posts:
A good advocacy plan will help our group decide where to spend time and effort to achieve our goals and assist us to be as effective as possible with our limited resources. The plan will be a key reference document that is periodically updated as we progress towards achieving our goals.
I’m pleased to announce that we have completed a final draft of our Strategy Roadmap. You can view it here.
The Roadmap documents our group’s vision (our goal), strategy (what are we trying to accomplish) as well as tactics (how will we accomplish it). Importantly, this version now includes an Action Plan with targets, which we intend use as a scorecard to measure ourselves against.
I anticipate that we may get a number of suggestions on tactics or activities we can undertake. Clearly, we need to prioritise as our capacity to take action as a group depends on your involvement and engagement. Our group has been steadily growing in size; please consider taking a more active role. For those of you looking to influence group direction, a good place to start is to volunteer to join the Steering Committee.
