Welcome to the Point Chart!
How it Works:
- Step 1: Choose from one of the three buckets — Politics, Public Awareness & Mobilizing or Fund Development.
- Step 2: Each individual assignment under each bucket is worth either 1 point, 10 points, 20 points or 30 points depending on the section you choose from. For example, if your manager asks you to do 10 points from the Point Chart, you only need to select a single assignment from the 10 points section.
- Step 3: Document your success and send the results to your manager. This can be as simple as a screenshot of an email or as fancy as photos or video footage.
