What is an action plan?

An action plan is a detailed and specific set of steps or strategies that outline how to achieve a particular goal or objective. It is a document that breaks down a larger goal into smaller, actionable steps that can be taken to make progress towards that goal.

Action plans typically include a timeline or deadline for each step, as well as the individuals or teams responsible for completing each task. They may also include resources required, such as budget or personnel, and any potential obstacles or risks that may arise.

Action plans are commonly used in business, education, healthcare, and personal goal-setting to provide a roadmap for achieving specific outcomes. They can be created for short-term goals or long-term objectives, and may be updated and revised as progress is made or circumstances change.
