BSBMGT502 Manage people performance

Developing a work plan:

  • Start by writing a brief description of the project. It should explain what the project is about, what it’s aiming to accomplish, or who it is targeting.

  • What are the objectives of your project? You can break these down to long-term or short-terms objectives.

  • Make sure your objectives are SMART - Specific, Measurable, Acheivable, Relevant, and Time-bound.

  • List down the resources you may need to carry out each of the tasks. In a professional context, these could include a financial budget, machinery, software etc., and in an academic context these could be books, research papers, etc.

  • Identify those who should be responsible for completing each of the tasks. And add timelines. You can either use a Gantt chart here to depict the order and duration of tasks or simply put start and end dates.

  • Are there any obstacles that may slow you down on your way to achieving your goals? You can also mention these along with the precautions you should take.

  • Note down how you will measure your success or identify when you have hit your goals.

  • Now draft these into a work plan template of your choice, or create one yourself.
