This document is part of a five-module training package to help employment and training service providers comply with the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) of 1998 and develop a one-stop training and employment services system. It consists of the participant workbook, trainer manual, and activity worksheets for a module on reviewing system-building progress and developing a blueprint for WIA transition. The training manual presents a detailed lesson plan that includes step-by-step instructions for using the following tools and techniques to deliver the module: presenting overhead slides; having participants complete exercises; writing information on flip charts; using small group discussions; and using full group discussion. The workbook activities and worksheets are designed to achieve the following objectives: (1) help local teams review their progress to date in developing one-stop systems; (2) help teams set goals and priorities for further system development during the training period; (3) review the WIA's requirements for one-stop systems; and (4) facilitate the launch or enhancement of a WIA transition team. The following are among specific topics covered: (1) basic features of local one-stop systems under the WIA; (2) the concept of tiered service delivery; (3) roles of specific local entities in one-stop systems; and (4) moving from networking to collaboration.
