Often, it is quite easy to come up with an idea, but much harder to turn it into reality. In this article, you will learn how to start a new project and finish it successfully at Activist Handbook.
We recommend to follow these steps:
With multiple people working on different aspects of the same project, it is important to have someone (or multiple people) that keep an overview.
Turn “let's change the world” into smaller and more manageable concrete steps. Make sure that it is clear who does what when. Constantly follow up on to-do's to see if things are going as planned, and then adapt accordingly.
Having productive conversations that make all participants feel comfortable requires active facilitation, especially in online video calls. Read our guide on how to facilitate meetings.
Working together on a project is not just about being as productive as possible. Make sure to continuously keep an eye out for people's mental and physical wellbeing.
