SAMPLE WORKPLAN

Goal: A broad statement that captures the overarching purpose of the intervention – not
measurable. The workplan can have more than one goal.

Measurable Objectives: Realistic and tangible targets for the intervention – objectives
should relate to the activities column of your workplan and set specific numbers/types of
activities to be completed by a certain date. The objectives should be for the first and
second year of the intervention.

Activities: Events or actions that take place as part of an intervention. Activities are what
is actually done to bring about the desired effects or changes of the intervention and are
supportive of the objectives. The activities should be for the first and second year of the
intervention.

Impact: The intended effects or changes that directly result from the intervention. The
impact should represent the results of the first year of the intervention.

Evaluation: How the activities and impact are measured. Includes both process and
outcome evaluation for activities and impacts in the first and second year of the
intervention. Each objective does not need both process and outcome evaluation;
however, the entire workplan should include both process and outcome evaluation.
Goal: Introduce systems changes to improve diabetes prevention among individuals at risk for diabetes by applying
