The number of of ideas needed will be limited on the basis of priorities. the outcomes will be the changes caused due to the project and its priorities. Outcome indicators will be measurable by the key performance indicators. I will to be open to outcomes and outputs of non expectation and where possible i will allow for learning and creative enquiry beyond the aims and objectives.

Also a questionnaire at the end is vital. For future contacts – should people to the organisation’s intranet, or will use email and newsletters to keep them informed?

The practical logistics here involve availability of visual aids, technology like webinair, teleconferencing, I will use what we were currently using and what we needed to use. I will Choose the right media and message as well as telling them about our success stories, any awards. The plan that included As and Os overview, the target audience and message and promotional material.
