1. Build a visual DoView of your program

Click inside the web page version of the DoView below. Tips for building DoViews here.  


2. Prioritize the boxes within your visual model

The boxes below have been prioritized - A, B, C. BAU (Business As Usual can also be used) for the next planning period (e.g. a year).

4. Link projects to the step(s) they're focused on and check for 'line-of-sight'

Link projects to the boxes they're focused on using DoView's easy Cross-Page Linking. The number of projects focused on each box will show as the small count number at the bottom of each box.
