ABSTRACT
The article offers insights on how improvement program succeed its aims. According to the author, one of the key initial activities for the program to succeed is to draw a clear vision of what an individual want to achieve. In return, the vision becomes the focus for all future actions, decisions and activities. The author stresses that programs are unlikely to succeed if without the common level of understanding.
