What steps will you take to put your plan into action?
You have a plan – now it’s time to implement.
Taking a systematic approach
Using your theory of change and Implementation Plan, you will systematically integrate client perspectives, research and evidence to begin working towards better outcomes.
Monitoring is fundamental
By regularly gathering feedback and reviewing data as you implement, you will find out if and how your activities are achieving results. You may need to make adjustments if things aren’t going to plan.
Remember: Managing the expectations of staff, clients and the community is important, particularly in the likely event that this will take longer than planned!
Reflect and review
Effective practice is supported by a process of learning and continuous improvement: regularly take time out to Reflect and Review all the way through!
It is good practice to set up regular ‘check-in’ points to consider the data you have collected and how it can be used to strengthen your program or service. Start by asking:
- What happened?
- So what?
- Now what?
Here are some Reflect and Review tools to get you started.
