An hour of planning can save 10 hours of doing” Dale Carnegie.

(Re-arranged from 3rd October 2018)

This course will help you develop a simple plan for your organisation and is essential for funding success. The course will ensure your activities are clearly related to the purpose of your organisation and the need / problem you exist to address. Having a plan in place will help you stay on track towards your goals (be successful), communicate clearly to others your organisations purpose and what you do and ensure everyone within your organisation is clear about what your organisation does.

A good plan is like a road map: it shows the final destination and usually the best way to get there” H. Stanley Judd
