Step 5: Identify resource needs and prepare a budget
Effective professional development requires adequate resources, including time, people, facilities and equipment, and money. When these resources are not available or if they are not available when they are needed, the effectiveness of the activity and its impact on participants will be diminished. Careful planning can identify what resources are needed and ensure that they are available when they are needed. The budget template that is included in this section of the planning guide can help you identify the resources that are necessary for the activity that you are planning to be successful and it will help you generate an estimate of the cost of the activity.
