The action plan provides key considerations to determine organizational preparedness, as well as guidance for creating a tailored deployment checklist.

MOF Action Plan: Redistributing the Workload. This action plan addresses the challenge of redistributing the workload due to staffing cuts and asks you to consider and reconfigure key responsibilities and work distribution, based on key principles and best practices from MOF 4.0 core content.

MOF Action Plan: Standard Changes. The latest MOF Action Plan will help your organization implement standard changes to improve your change process. The action plan serves as a supplement to Using Standard Changes to Improve Provisioning: A MOF Companion Guide and provides guidance for selecting and implementing standard changes.
