Visual action plan

According to Harvard Business Review, businesses with well-defined action plans were 3.5 times more likely to out-perform competitors. This standard action plan provides ample room for sketches or product mock-ups and is better for ideas that need to be explained visually. Of course, you can always replace the images with words instead. (Slide 7)

The Now, Next, Later framework in the middle helps triage tasks and their priority. Underneath that, specific resources can be listed out, such as budget, time, personnel, equipment, and skill sets required to accomplish the task. On the side, track your progress and final output from these actions. 

Team action tracker

This team action tracker layout is divided into tasks for this week, and tasks for next week. The time frame can be adjusted according to your team's cadence. It all depends on how specific the team's needs are, and if you want to provide a high level action plan or more granular, task by task view. List the owner, status, draggable timeline, and due date. If more space is needed, delete the second table and add rows to the first table. (Slide 4)

Task prioritization

So how would you decide which action item is more important out of a whole list of tasks? This standard action Priority Matrix ranks effort and impact in a four by four grid to tackle the low-hanging fruit, or "low effort but high impact" quick wins first. Once the quick wins are checked off, go for the "high effort, high impact" major projects, and ignore the low effort and low impact tasks only when you have time. (Slide 12)

Tasks can also be prioritized based on importance versus urgency. This framing follows the Eisenhower Matrix. By categorizing tasks based on their urgency and importance, these businesses effectively eliminated non-essential activities, focused on what truly matters, and improved their bottom line. (Slide 15) Once all tasks are plotted, you can tabulate your results on the below action priority chart. (Slide 10)

Action plan frameworks

Atomic habits

We often overestimate what we can do in one day, and underestimate what we can do in one year. In the book Atomic Habits, the author writes about how daily improvements of just 1% can compound dramatically over time to deliver astonishing results. This principle of compounding growth highlights the enormous potential of small, consistent changes over time.

This slide structures an action plan around the teachings of Atomic Habits. Specifically, habits to form and habits to break. It also allows you to identify the triggers and motivators that help achieve these goals. (Slide 25)

SMART goals

Action plans can also be designed around the idea of SMART Goals, which stands for specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and timely. This flow chart starts with the final goal, branching into well-defined indicators, metrics, and targets. Say your goal is to increase the team's output by 20%, indicators might include reduced project completion times, and fewer errors. Measures could include baseline current productivity rates, and targets could be set to a certain percentage improvement per month to reach the 20% mark in six months. (Slide 26)

The first 100 days

An effective way to tackle complex goals is to break them down into stages based on time periods. As a time frame-based action plan, the 100-day action roadmap spreads key tasks or deliverables across about a quarter's worth of time, which conveniently matches the frequency that businesses tend to measure performance.

This visualization segments the 100 days into four 25-day phases, while this visualization breaks the timeline into five 20-day phases. (Slide 29)

Alternatively, consider a 30-60-90-Day action plan. This is especially helpful when embarking on a new job or new project, as the first three months can really set you up for future success. (Slide 31)

Project action timeline

Last but not least, if you want an action plan formulated in the style of a tried-and-true Gantt chart, this slide template does the trick. Additionally, to get a better read of the overall project status, add progress bars on top of the timelines with a simple duplication. (Slide 21)
