The materials are arranged in a series of systematic stages with step-by-step instructions for each stage. The sequence of stages follows a progression that includes organizing the leadership team and committees (and forming a local development organization if one is not already in operation), collecting data and assembling a community assets inventory, drafting a development plan of goals and objectives, implementing that plan, and evaluating the entire process (see the BAND Process Handout on Page 8). The materials include detailed instructions, handouts, worksheets, and examples to conduct the BAND process.
