Development Cooperation Handbook/Templates/Programme plan
The programme plan is the deliverable that terminates the Design phase and opens the of implementation phase of programme cycle management)
A program plan may have a different format according if it is meant for the project partners as external stakeholders. When the plan is meant mainly for an audience of internal stakeholders the operations plan may contain more details for specifying all the tasks required for managing the activities and delivering the expected products/services. However in many cases external stakeholders like donors and other partners will be interested to see such details and monitor the implementation of activities because they have to justify to others the resources they have invested in the project/programme.
It is a good practice to divide the plan into two main portions:
- The description of the organization (or consortium) that is responsible for the Program
- The description of the Objectives and the Methodology of the Program
