Defining Action Items

How to Prepare Your Department

Action Items are things that could be done now to make your department more prepared. They are the most important part of your department’s business continuity plan. The process of thinking through the steps you need to take to prepare is critical to developing a culture of preparedness.

To add an Action Item, select Plan - In Progress from the left navigation menu. Choose Action items summary and then click New action item. Populate the fields with information relevant to your Action Item, such as cost, status and due date.

After providing an Action Item, be sure to click the Save Action Item button at the bottom of the page. For more information on defining Action Items, review the Guidance area in the right sidebar of the Action Items Summary page.
