Designing and Implementing a NORC Program
Guiding Principle # 5
A NORC program plans and launches specific projects that collectively address the many dimensions of a problem.
Having selected which challenges to successful aging in place to take on, a NORC program will next need to structure its activities. A work plan, described below, is a useful tool to guide those efforts.
Because multiple projects are usually required to address a single challenge, it is important to keep each project clearly focused on the broader purpose. Well-defined goals, objectives, tasks, resources, and timelines help everyone think about challenges realistically, take a systematic approach to implementation, and work most efficiently.
