A series of 'How-To Guides' for DoView users. The first one answers the question 'What's a DoView outcomes (results) model and why should I use one? More will follow.
An Outcomes DoView is the new, more effective way of doing all of you thinking and planning about you projects, organizations, collaborations or coalitions. In the past, if you were planning a project, doing organizational planning, or working on a collaboration, you'd do a number of different separate things, including: strategic planning; priority setting; identifying gaps and overlaps in your activities (or projects); working out who should be doing what; tracking how you're progressing; thinking about how you should evaluate what you're doing; thinking about how to discuss what you're accountable for with your funders, and trying to quickly explain what you're trying to do to your busy and overloaded stakeholders. …
Traditional strategic planning - long text and table documentation - is dead
Use DoView® Visual Strategic Planning to:
- Immediately 'see' what you're trying to do
- Communicate faster with staff, stakeholders, management, funders
- Check for visual 'line-of-sight' between priorities and activities.
- Turn on a dime - change your priorities fast as circumstances change in this uncertain world
- Do your annual (or more frequent) planning quicker - just tweak your priorities directly onto your visual strategic plan
