Creating your action plan
Gaining Real Benefits from the Training
We won't be giving you a binder of full of materials, instead we will give you something much better! Throughout the training, you will work on your action plan that you will start implementing after the training.
1. Access the action plan template
2. Align your plan to the organisation's priorities
What are the key priorities of your organisation? What is the biggest fleet challenge? Think about:
We advise you to pick 2 areas to focus on.
3. Communicate with your stakeholders
Homework for you: Think of your stakeholders. Who are the people in your organisation who can either affect or be affected by the way you manage your fleet? Your task is to contact 2 of them (via phone, videocall or in person) and ask them the following:
- How does fleet support the organisation?
- Which fleet challenges do you think I should focus on in the coming 6 months?
4. Make your objectives SMART
How often do you set objectives only to quit soon after or forget about them entirely? Many people fail to stick to their objectives because they aren't clear about what it is they actually want to achieve. This is where SMART objectives can help.
It's a simple framework that allows you to clarify your key objectives, to focus your efforts, and to use your time and resources productively.
SMART objectives need to be:
1. Specific (simple, sensible, significant).
2. Measurable (meaningful, motivating).
3. Achievable (attainable).
4. Relevant (reasonable, realistic and results-based).
5. Time-bound (time-limited, time/cost limited, or time-sensitive).
