Global Entrepreneurship Week is the world’s largest celebration of the innovators and job creators who launch startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare.

During one week each November, GEW inspires people everywhere through local, national and global activities designed to help them explore their potential as self-starters and innovators. These activities, from large-scale competitions and events to intimate networking gatherings, connect participants to potential collaborators, mentors and even investors—introducing them to new possibilities and exciting opportunities.

GEW is more than just an awareness campaign supported by world leaders and celebrity entrepreneurs. It is about unleashing ideas and doing what it takes to bring them to life—spotting opportunities, taking risks, solving problems, being creative, building connections and learning from both failure and success. It is about thinking big and making your mark on the world—doing good while doing well at the same time.

Developing an Action Plan

Each of the newly trained KAB facilitators should develop a personal action plan by the time the KAB workshop ends. It may be useful to have small groups of participants from the same school, city or area develop a group action plan. The purpose of the action plan is to have participants know what procedures they will follow to implement the KAB curriculum in their classrooms. By developing the action plan, and then sharing it with other KAB facilitators, all participants will “go on record” as to what they will do in the future regarding the implementation of the KAB curriculum.

The success and impact of the KAB TOF workshop is greatly determined by what the participants do when they return to their education institutions.  Are they able to teach the KAB curriculum?  Are they able to involve other teachers?  Can KAB be a regular part of their teaching assignment?  Can KAB be a required course in the curriculum?

The action plan should spell out the specific steps that the participant will take to implement the KAB curriculum.

Action Plan Content

1. Subject: Implementation of the KAB curriculum into the educational system.

2. Objective: Purpose or intent of including the KAB curriculum within the overall academic curriculum.  What do you want to accomplish?  What is your purpose or broad objective related to the KAB curriculum?

3. Goals: These are the intended outcomes needed to achieve the objectives (such as timelines, outputs, achievement on tests, etc.). How will you know when you have accomplished your goals? What are your specific targets by which you will measure success?

4. Activities to be completed: A listing of activities (in sequence) and the time needed to complete the activities to implement the KAB curriculum.

5. Potential problems and possible solutions: Current and potential problems that might be barriers to implement the action plan as well as possible solutions to successfully resolve these problems. What barriers or obstacles might be encountered as the action plan is implemented? How can you avoid or resolve these problems?

6. Resources available to implement KAB: People and materials needed to implement KAB. What human resources, equipment, materials and outside resources are needed to implement the KAB action plan?

7. Costs and benefits of implementing KAB: Time and effort of participants and others to implement the KAB action plan to achieve intended outcomes.

8. Commitment: The people needed to support the KAB programme may include: the participant, Department Head, Principal, District Officials and others.

It would be good for the KAB KF to receive a copy of the action plan from all participants
