Capacity Building Planning Tool

The Capacity Building Planning Tool is used to assist a State Leadership Team to develop and implement procedures to: (1) scale-up the adoption and use of a targeted evidence-based practice or program and (2) evaluate the extent to which implementation of the practice or program has occurred over time. The tool includes five components for planning, promoting adoption, and evaluating different stages of implementation. The components of the planning tool are: (1) Leadership Team, (2) Vision, (3) Needs Assessment, (4) Outreach and Training, and (5) Evaluation. The activities in each component at each stage of implementation occur concurrently rather than in a sequential fashion.
