“ Mechanism for Implementation” Action Team #5 Aspiration Action Team #2 Action Team #3 Action Team #4 Action Team #1 Steering Committee Project Mgmt. Traveling Community Roundtable Greater Carroll County
While some on an action team won’t be able to be completely “without agenda” the team as a whole should model how all engagement with the process should be valued – I.E., it is owned by the community and not on individual, organization or sector.
Their presence encourages others to be involved and thus creates a leverage as they bring new resources in time and dollars to the solution.
What is our hypothesis? How do we address those levers/barriers?
The Narrative (Part Four)
How do we implement change? What/Who/When
How do we know that it works?
