Free 18-Month Planning Dashboard (Template)
We all consume a lot of information during the day. So it’s nice to occasionally have a document, image, graphic, or dashboard that presents a different view. For some people, planning out into the future using an existing calendar program or timeline is adequate. But sometimes you want a colorful, simple-to-digest template to share with donors, board members or other stakeholders.
Here is a super basic tool, built in Microsoft Word, that is an alternative timeline template. I have used this in presentations, grant proposals, and in planning discussions and it has been received warmly. Feel free to play with the colors, box width, and height or other elements. It is fully editable.
The reason I created an 18-month Planning Dashboard is that 12-month calendars don’t fully capture a process cycle. Cycles start and end beyond annual markers. I’d love your thoughts on the tool. Please share the link to this page for the download. Head there and scroll down to find it! It's like a treasure hunt.
