ork Plan Template Examples – PRD Tool

The purpose of the Work Plan Template is to break down the goal setting process into smaller, more actionable steps. This template helps with outlining
what is needed to accomplish each goal (collaboration, resources, due date or frequency, anticipated obstacles and solutions). The goals can be listed first
and then ranked in order of priority in the 1st far left column. Two examples of a completed work plan for one goal are included below.

Use SMART goal setting: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Trackable & Time Bound

Ensure that goals are linked to one of the 4 R.H. Smith School of Business strategic goals, in addition to the department’s strategic plan
and goals.

Track progress made throughout the year to stay on target with both work and professional development goals.
