ABOUT THE COURSE
COMMIT TO YOUR SUCCESS
Stop the adopt and abandon cycle and build a system to get your next program, practice, policy, or strategy embedded in the day-to-day practice of the people doing the work, your implementers.
Designed by implementation and change experts, this certification course is a one-of-a-kind learning experience designed to help leaders and stakeholders create lasting change and improvement in their systems.
In this certification course, you and your team will build implementation team competencies that meet the leading research and implementation organization's implementation facilitator standards and competencies (GIS, NIRN, TCI). You will design an implementation plan, and learn why human and learning-centered design is critical in change initiatives.
Through purposeful and engaging learning designs, participants will understand:
the critical components of shifting the culture, growing the implementers, and building deliberate developmental implementation (DDI) in your organization,
the high cost of non-implementation,
the importance of leveraging human and learning-centered design.
Through purposeful and engaging learning designs, participants will understand and engage in:
the essential components of developing effective and efficient implementation teams (why, what, who, when),
the theory and science of building a guiding coalition of champions (aka, the secret sauce!),
the processes and tools to empower implementation teams in the continuous improvement cycle, HOW to do the work (identify the problem, identify the solution, identify implementation strategies, design a monitoring plan),
how to develop your IMPACT Implementation Plan to support staff to and through ANY change initiative.
Through purposeful and engaging learning designs, participants will:
co-create an implementation plan that meets certification standards.
receive feedback and coaching from facilitators and peers while developing the plan (formative assessment)
present approved implementation plan to peers and facilitators.
