Step-by-Step Guidance on Implementation
This section provides detailed guidance on the steps to follow in the Implementation phase of your CBA project. It walks you through the key steps in the Implementation phase, providing explanations, examples, and recommended tools and resources to assist you along the way. Following these steps will help you to achieve a plan for project implementation that meets the CBA Implementation Standards. Note that it is not necessary to follow the steps in sequence as they are presented here – it is likely that you will undertake several steps simultaneously.
The key steps in the Implementation phase are:
STEPS: Table of Contents
STEP 1: Planning for effective implementation
STEP 2: Ensuring effective partnerships
STEP 3: Developing capacity of staff and partners
STEP 4: Monitoring context and adjusting project approach
STEP 5: Ensuring sensitivity to gender and diversity in project operations
STEP 6: Emergency preparedness
The Implementation stage is essentially the process of putting the design into action. A high quality design will generally lead to effective implementation. For this reason, the content of this section is based on the assumption that key design steps outlined in the previous section have been followed; yielding a design that meets the CBA Project Design Standards. Therefore, it focuses on planning for implementation, as well as a few key quality assurance issues that will maximise the effectiveness of CBA project implementation.
