Planning for Program Implementation -- A Process Guide. Instructional Planning Series.
Brokes, A. L.; Jenks, C. L.
This guide presents tasks a planning group should consider when implementing a program. Although implementation may not occur in this sequence, the total array of implementation tasks includes selecting a planning group leader, defining the problem, selecting objectives, designing the program, developing an implementation plan, developing an evaluation plan, securing approval of the plan and budget, operating the program, concluding the plans, evaluating the program, and determining the program's future. The development of an implementation plan receives major attention; detailed directions and suggestions for accomplishing 12 subtasks are given. The subtasks include writing a group mission statement; determining personnel requirements, material resources, and school readiness; planning the staff selection, purchasing schedule, staff orientation; determining costs and the sequence of tasks; establishing a timeline; and arranging an independent review of the plan. A suggested structure for the planning group session is provided. (Author/DW)
