GIC 2011 - Washington, D.C.

The first Global Implementation Conference was held Washington, DC in 2011. The focus of the conference was on the “What” of implementation – what it is, who is involved, and what needs to be done to succeed with implementation. Accordingly, five practice groups structured the program - based on different roles within the field of implementation: practitioners, policy makers, researchers, organizational leaders, and purveyors.
