Appendix D. Sample Prework Checklist
Appendix D: Sustainability Planning Prework Checklist
To get started in your sustainability planning, gather and organize relevant information about the current state and recent history of the collaborative.
This information will provide the facilitator with an up-to-date view of the current state. You should also consider how recently the participants in your planning process, such as a steering group, working committee, or your board, have reviewed this information. If it has been more than a few months, you may want to begin by refreshing and level-setting all participants' understanding of the current state.
