Action plan

Applying external learnings to part of your business

Medium effort

Medium impact

Learning from peers and external resources can help leaders to improve their own capabilities and make better-informed decisions. However, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to subjects like business development. What worked for one business isn’t guaranteed to work for yours. It’s vital to scrutinise the advice you receive and decide what’s suitable before you make any changes.

  • We’ve designed our action plans to be completed in the order of steps laid out and explained why each step is important
  • Customising your action plan lets you set your own completion dates, assign tasks to others and get notifications
  • Helpful tools are provided for certain steps while a tracking metric at the end will help you determine the long-term success of your effort
  • A downloadable PDF version of each action plan is available if you’d like to compete it offline

Feedback from stakeholders

Check-in on the impact of the changes you’ve made

Why this metric?

Feedback from stakeholders is a great way to assess whether new changes have had a positive impact.

How do I start tracking?

Meet with stakeholders three months after you applied external learnings to get their feedback: did the changes make a difference? Did they make something better, faster or easier? How could you improve further?
