Define What You Will Do Together
As a team, agree on why you exist, your scope of work, what you’re doing and why, and what you promise to deliver to others.
Agree on deliverables is the first step in launching a project and when the team agrees on why it exists and what it will do. The HET Project Outline helps define your promise to your stakeholders and to one another. It gets your team on the same page about what you are doing and why, and then documents agreed-upon changes to the promise over time. It helps introduce your project to external stakeholders, communicate changes about the project to decision-makers, and justify funding. The Project Theory of Change tool helps clarify what the team can control and deliver on versus what change you hope will happen in the world because of your project’s deliverables.
Are you willing to stake your career and reputation on this deliverable?
