THE ACTION PLANNING METHOD (APM)

This is a method that is used to plan for the successful launch of a project at its most critical stage. It is best for planning projects with time line not exceeding six (6) months – one year. It can also be used to plan parts of a big project or completion of abandoned projects. It is useful for clarifying directions, aligning resources, designating leadership roles and responsibilities and building team trust and support.
