Snowflake method checklist. Maybe you'd rather work from the top down than from the ground up. Inspired by fractal geometry (really!), Randy Ingermanson's "snowflake method" grows an entire novel from a single sentence. Each step of the process methodically expands upon the one before, filling in detail until you have a complete draft.
An plan provides a detailed outline of the tasks required to accomplish a goal. It breaks down the process into able steps based on a given timeline. This could apply to an employee who is trying to improve job performance, a project manager assigning items to team members, or an organization or school implementing system_wide changes.
