Re: Augmented Pace Action Plan (APAP)
I am attaching the Augmented Pace Action Plan (APAP). The purpose of this document is to augment the currently ongoing Pace strategic plan and make it more implementable. This APAP document, subject to further input from the Pace community, proposes a number of key additional action items (in red) which could be considered for implementation as part of the Pace strategic plan. I have learned since coming here that some of these activities are already in progress, and the intended goals are being accomplished. In that case, there may just be minor improvements to be made. However, many other action items should stimulate new thinking, and sharpen the strategic planning and implementation process. For convenience, all the additional action items proposed in this document has been listed and inserted under the six key goals of the Pace Strategic plan.
The Augmented Pace Action Plan (APAP) will be posted on the web in the next month for comments. In the meantime, small action teams are being formed to look at specific action items, get data and a current status report, suggestions for implementation, and an estimate of the resources needed. This will keep us ready for progress as resources become available, and some items will get implemented every year. I look forward to working with the Pare community. We all need to pull together in one direction in order to have impact! I look forward to this challenge with confidence!
