The second of my 5 part series on how organizational culture and climate effects an organization’s readiness and ability to work with an evidence-based program that uses implementation science as a method of delivery. The Pyramid Plus Approach is used as the evidence-based program and Bal Swan Children’s Center is the organization trying in implement. Below is a brief description of the content.
We will explore your organization’s perceived values-fit and perception of the practices used by Pyramid Plus Model. If your organization’s staff is misaligned with either, there are ways to surface these issues early in the implementation process. This early understanding gives us the opportunity to address these issues before the organization invests in the more costly implementation phases of the Pyramid Plus Model (or any evidence-based program).
Starting anything new in an organization is an investment. It is risky. It costs time and money. It can be painful and awkward. Actually, good investments can lose money in the short-term. As leaders we hope we have weighed the risks & costs against the expected long-term benefits.
Wouldn’t it be great to do a pre-investment assessment? It is important to know your organization’s readiness to do the needed work! At the very least, it is imperative to understand the hidden barriers that may inhibit the return on your organization’s investment.
