ToP Secrets of Implementation

Once you’ve successfully created a participatory plan together, now the implementation journey begins.

Attend this learning lab to learn 40 tips to implementation success with fellow practitioners bringing real case examples.

Do your clients have difficulties sustaining a plan once it has been initiated? Do you sometimes have difficulties helping your clients stay on track, bring new people into a team and bring closure? This course is about keeping plans and projects alive, relevant, doable and achievable. There is a large and powerful component for peer mentoring in this course.

After taking this course you will be able to:

  • Understand and anticipate the ups and downs of the implementation journey
  • Initiate dynamic plans
  • Sustain momentum in plans that the team has created
  • Review and reposition projects that are in process
  • Bring closure to plans and celebrate the team’s work


People who are actively supporting the implementation of plans and strategies with teams, including but not limited to: Consultants, facilitators, organizational leadership and change agents, social change agents, community workers, and planners. Local, state and federal program and project managers. Please bring some of your own implementation problems to work on.
