Planning a project well is extremely important as it sets the basis for the whole implementation. Preparing a project takes time. Finding the right partners, agreeing on activities and responsibilities, preparing the budget and securing co-financing are all steps that have to be taken into account. This means that it is advisable to start the process as early as possible.
It is important to involve the relevant people in content and budget planning. Where possible, the people who will participate in implementing the project should participate in the planning. Remember to involve people from the partner organisations in a broad way: financial and other administrative staff as well as experts on content areas will probably have many useful insights. Experience shows that the quality of planning has a strong impact on project implementation.
