Developing an Action Plan and Implementing Interventions
Once a particular intervention—a program or policy—has been identified, sound planning techniques can ensure that the program is implemented effectively. This chapter focuses on action planning—that is, planning for a defined program or policy with specific, time-dependent outcomes compared with ongoing planning that is a regular function within an organization. The chapter is organized in five main sections, designed to highlight ecologic frameworks, give examples of behavioral science theories that can increase the likelihood of carrying out effective interventions, review key principles of planning, outline steps in action planning, and describe important aspects of coalition-based interventions.
