We concern ourselves with how to obtain the needed resources (e.g., time, money, people) so that the solutions we’ve identified in Step 3 can be implemented.

How to pay for this?

Step 5: Performance

We monitor and improve the implementation of solutions from Step 3 by resources from Step 4.

How to work better?

Key is: Don’t Skip Steps
