Example text

One-off, short-term objectives are not of interest as the user will create himself one-off, temporary activities to deal with them. We are looking for objectives with a longer life for which activities (that is, types of activity) have been created or are needed. For example: to feed patients (objective)—►catering services (activity); to give patients clean and sterile laundry—>laundry services; to secure and keep a high quality of medical staff—►medical staff administration (sub-activities will probably include training, payment, provision of accommodation and library facilities, pensions services (all of which may serve to provide and secure high quality staff)).
