- Working together to develop the Implementation Infrastructure
- Communication and Knowledge Capture
- Regional, National, and Global Implementation Collaboration
GIC 2013 - Washington, D.C.
The GIC 2013, again held in Washington DC, focused on the “How?” of implementation – how it is done, what tools can be used to support it, how it can be measured etc. The program structure was based on common functional interests and content areas such as Laying the groundwork, Implementation teams, Work Force, Leadership & Organizational Change, Measures & Tools, Fidelity & Scaling Up, Communication, Policy Engagement, and Implementation Science Synthesis.
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.
