Action Program

A plan detailing the steps one must take to achieve a stated goal. For example, if one wishes to have a larger office in two years, one may make an action program detailing how to attain that goal. An action program must show the time horizon, the tasks one must complete, and the cost associated with each task. It is also called an action plan.
