Business plan

Short term action plan

One of the principles in Sport For Life is to be responsive. We will continue to adapt what we do based on what is happening around us. With this context in mind we have put our 2019-21 business plan to one side and developed a short term action plan to respond to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.

The short term action plan will drive our work during the second half of 2019-20 and shape our business planning beyond that. For several years we have referred to our business plan as ‘dynamic’, meaning that it can change to reflect our current focus and activities. It has never been more important that we stick to this principle. In line with our dynamic business planning approach, we will continue to review and develop our short term action plan regularly. 


Our business plan for 2019-21 covers the first two years of our new corporate strategy, Sport For Life. It describes the programmes we will deliver, the key changes we will make and our key objectives.

Each programme in our plan is underpinned by an operating plan. These outline the key activities and actions we will deliver to achieve the programme objectives. They also include the people responsible and the budget we have allocated.

We produce quarterly reports on our progress against this plan for the sportscotland Board and the Scottish Government. We will report annually against the key performance indicators in the plan.
