The Operating Plan flows from the Strategic Plan and captures the tactics to be used to accomplish the objectives over the next three years. The Operating Plan is developed and implemented by the staff and directs the operations of the organization. As in all activities of a nonprofit organization, it is important to have the organization’s mission and vision at the forefront. In the plan Meals On Wheels, Inc. of Tarrant County will be referred to as Meals On Wheels.
