Activity Implementation Overview

Implementation Methodology

The project utilizes Schein's (2004) model of transformational change: analysis and intervention; experimentation and modeling; and infrastructure and training. This gradual design, testing and corrections process is used throughout the implementation process to allow refinements of the strategy each year.
