Plan for Delivery

An effective delivery plan – or set of plans – is crucial to the success of any delivery effort. A delivery plan is a high-impact, evidence-based plan that clearly connects the work being done to the aspiration and is used to drive the day-to-day work. The plan should define key goals and strategies and leaders for each, articulate the chain through which implementation will progress, and project the expected impact of the strategies on the goals.
