STRATEGIC ACTION FRAMEWORK
A Road Map for Change
The Strategic Action Framework (SAF) is the road map for change. It encompasses five phases and twenty objectives, each of which must be attended to if the Walk Together Design is to be effective.
The SAF is a guide to developing sustainable projects, a risk-management tool as well as a planning tool. It is a railway line that carries people wanting to achieve good things and helps them navigate towards their vision. Each numbered box is a station through which the train must pass or, said another way, an objective that must be achieved.
The four key strategies for the success of a project operating under the SAF are those of Relationships, Facilitation, Objectives and Monitoring. Without any one of these, the process fails.
The five phases up the left hand side are the levels through which an idea must pass to reach fruition or become reality: what CSC calls embedment, meaning the new practices have become standard practices. The four headings under the word relationships show crucial elements which must be constantly thought about and enacted. And those who in enact in each phase could change.
