Getting the Basics Right

Developing Aims, Objectives and Action Plan

Once you have your vision and the beginnings of your partnership in place it is time to work on developing a clear set of aims and objectives that will contribute to achieving this vision. Spending time working with stakeholders to draft, consult and confirm aims and objectives will help ensure buy in to your partnership at a strategic level.

Some food partnerships decide to publish their vision, aims and objectives in a separate ‘food strategy’ document and have found this to be a useful process. Unlike an action plan which needs regular updating, achieving stakeholder buy in to your vision and aims is more likely to stand the test of time.

Other food partnerships have decided to focus purely on the creation of an action plan. If you decide to go with this approach it will still be necessary to clearly link your action plan back to your vision either through your aims and objectives or by taking an outcomes based approach.
