The first form of plan focuses on the whole organisation, department, team, or work group, depending on the most logical size of group with which to work, and it needs to be considered against the following:

• Budget;

• Number of people involved;

• Resources, e.g., space, equipment, materials;

4) The value of continuous learning, whereby learning is not seen as a one-off event.
