WHO does the work of implementation? Purposeful, active, and effective implementation work (making it happen) is done by Implementation Teams. Some Implementation Teams are developers and purveyors of individual evidence-based programs. Some Implementation Teams are intermediary organizations that help others implement a variety of evidence-based programs. Other Implementation Teams are developed on site with support from groups outside the organization or system.
An Implementation Team is more than a name. Implementation Team members have special expertise regarding programs, implementation science and practice, improvement cycles, and organization and system change methods. They are accountable for making it happen; for assuring that effective interventions and effective implementation methods are in use to produce intended outcomes for children and families.
