Implementation Checklist

Implementation is a commonly used term in relation to change, with various definitions covering a spectrum of steps.  Implementation in the context of quality improvement is a more narrow focus than how the term is commonly used:   “The aim of this narrow scope of implementation is to make sure the infrastructure is in place to make the change long-lasting and successful.  This includes issues such as training, documentation, standardization, adequate resources, and social considerations…”

This Implementation Checklist is a tool for  teams seeking to implement a successful change and contains a list of suggested actions and infrastructure to consider putting in place before a change is ready for implementation.  Although all of the ideas may not be applicable to every campus and situation, the more items teams can check off, the more successful their  implementation efforts are likely to be.
