In this section of our toolkit we present the full range of elements that make up a planning process, from the planning-to-plan stage all the way through implementation and evaluation. As you read through this chapter, keep in mind that the steps in this process are not necessarily linear, especially once you become engaged in planning. As one aspect begins to inform another, the process may strike you as very circular in nature. Each agency will need to chart its own course, developing a unique approach that connects these basic elements of the planning process in different ways. The case studies that we present later will bear this out. Nevertheless, most state arts agency plans that have proven successful over time have involved some version of all of the basic components described below.
