The purpose of this brief is to discuss issues and approaches to preparing for initial implementation of model demonstrations. The goal of this stage is to build the capacity of individual implementers, as well as the organizations or systems in which they work, to support implementation and optimize conditions for success. Much of the implementation literature highlights the importance of preparation in achieving high-quality implementation and ultimately, improved outcomes for the target population. This report summarizes the experiences of leaders of OSEP-funded model demonstration projects during the implementation preparation stage of their projects.
