At the Paperless Movement®, we don't subscribe to annual planning.

Instead, we advocate for quarterly planning as a strategy for developing your initial set of Output Elements.

Then, based on your goals, you create the Output Elements (Projects, Workstreams, or Operations) you may think of, outlining a high-level roadmap that includes start and end dates for each.
