The Implementation Effectiveness methodology is designed to be used in part or in its entirety depending on the magnitude of the change to be implemented. It is not a linear process but allows the user to focus on specific Critical Success Factors throughout the change process as needed. Each tool within the toolkit is aligned to a specific Critical Success Factor and although not all tools may be necessary for an implementation, many tools can be used in conjunction with another.

The Implementation Effectiveness toolkit contains 18 tools covering all 8 of the Critical Success Factors. Each toolkit is contained within a Practicing Implementation Effectiveness binder and includes a detailed write-up of each of our Critical Success Factors as an added bonus. The IE toolkit and binder is provided to participants of the Practicing Implementation Effectiveness workshop.

A popular tool and activity in the Implementation Effectiveness toolkit is the Relationship Map . The Relationship Map is useful to identify where relationships among stakeholders of the project can be leveraged or where assistance may be required to influence key individuals. Typically done in conjunction with or shortly after the first Stakeholder Analysis, the Relationship Map builds on the stakeholder information and helps to analyze which key groups and individuals need the most attention during the project. This will reveal who is most likely to be able to influence them such that they support, or at least don't oppose your project.

The Relationship Map can be purchased through the Implementation Institute shop and can be used multiple times to capture stakeholder information throughout a project or across multiple projects. The Relationship Map is is 24" x 36" and comes laminated with stickers and dry erase markers to be used multiple times. Additional refill packs including stickers and markers can be purchased separately.
