Monitor Implementation and Address Challenges

The most frequently cited implementation problems in the research were lack of adherence to a program manual or protocol, incomplete or inconsistent service delivery, and low participant attendance.

Put in place a systematic process for monitoring implementation so that you can determine if your program has an implementation problem, identify the problem and its sources, and plan how to address it. Without a system in place to monitor program operations and implementation, program managers may not have a full picture of any problems or, more importantly, what might be causing the problems. Monitoring implementation as part of an overall Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) approach can help you diagnose problems and ensure that what you learn from monitoring is incorporated into staff training and professional development, program operations, and program design.
