Stages Exploration Installation Initial
The goal of the Exploration Stage is to select the right evidence-based program. Your organization will strive to identify the best program fit, which is the match between needs and resources and the characteristics of the program (this is discussed in greater detail later). Four main activities are involved in this stage:
- Identify your community's needs to determine the type of program that will be most appropriate.
- Assess your organizational capacity including financial resources, organizational commitment, and community buy-in to determine your ability to implement a program with fidelity.
- Search program registries to select a program that matches your community needs, your organization's available resources, and available programs.
- Understand program fidelity and program adaptation.
Focusing on these activities to identify a good program fit is part of ensuring successful implementation.
