The mission of this monograph is to provide you with a framework and set of tools to achieve success. The starting point is a four-step framework for developing effective implementation plans: Architect, Pilot, Scale, Improve. A set of tools that support each of the framework stages are then profiled. Tools for change management and project management are also provided.

Learning Objective:

The goals of the monograph are to provide students and practitioners with:

  1. A framework for implementing policies;
  2. A toolkit to operationalize the framework;
  3. A means to manage the overall implementation effort.
