This section of the roadmap sets out actions within 27 work areas under each of the five themes of the Strategy. We have laid out the actions in a way that recognises that progress will happen in steps.
We recognise that different organisations will be at different stages in their own development. The actions in this roadmap aim to account for this through the general approach taken. The actions typically start with an assessment of current progress. They then comprise guidelines for sharing good practice and build on further improvement from that base.
The actions are intended to be carried out within a five-year timeframe, with the first steps starting in 2016/17 and indicated with an asterisk (*). The workplan will be updated each year, as section B describes.
Appendix 1 summarises the 27 areas for action.
