Task 5: Prepare a Digest that documents the workshop inputs, outputs and next steps
Before adjourning the workshop, the facilitator reviews the workshop outputs with the participants and seeks to develop a list of 「next steps」 that policy-makers, administrators and managers must take before the organisation will fully benefit from participating in the workshop.
Following the workshop, the facilitator assembles the workshop inputs, outputs and list of next steps into a digest that s/he delivers to the organisation’s executive director within 30 days.
After reviewing the digest, the Board and/or executive director assign responsibility for completing the next steps and consider engaging a business consultant or NPO service agency to help the organisation:
- select the most practical initiatives in the light of competing needs and resources
- develop a strategic plan and action plans for achieving the desired future state and bringing the vision to reality
- implement the plans
- develop a quality review process
