Getting Ready for Person-Directed Implementation


Planning is the final task of the getting-ready stage. Creating a plan for how systems, organizational
structure, and practices will change to support the organization's new mission, vision, and values will provide a segue into the implementation phase. Using the assessment process to inform the planning, culture change must be included in the strategic plan. The team designing this plan can prioritize changes with significant input from staff, residents, families, and the board of directors/leadership. The plan serves as a starting point and should be implemented at a realistic pace for the organization. Plans should be reviewed and revised on an ongoing basis. It is inevitable that much learning will take place as changes are made, and plans should grow to reflect this.
