one of the danger with planning programmes year by year is that we fail to appreciate “why” we do things within the programme.
The initial planning will have had reasons why each aspect of the programme was included but as each year goes by it can be possible to forget the principles and go through the motions. This can negate any reasons for planning the event in the first place.
Reminds me of the old story of the lady who cut off the ends of her ham before cooking it. When asked why, she responded that this was the way her mum had cooked the ham. When her mother was asked she responded in the same way. When the grandmother was asked she replied…..”it was the only way it would fit in the pan”!
So tell me…..why are each aspects of your programme included?
