The Implementing Change Community (ICC)


We’re building the bridge between implementation science and practice.

In our community, we want you to go from feeling isolated, stuck, and confused to feeling confident, supported, and productive in moving your implementation work forward.

This is where real change happens.

Before we go on to tell you about this incredible community, let’s share some details on who this is for.


You are working towards creating change but know that your efforts could amount to so much more.



You are taking steps in a good direction, but feel like you could get there more quickly and strategically if you just had some more support — and a community to lean on, full of professionals who can relate to what you’re working through.


Whether you’re…


  • An experienced and trained implementer who is looking to connect, collaborate, and learn from colleagues who are dealing with similar challenges in applying implementation science


  • A new/novice implementer or implementation support practitioner who wants to learn from others who have experienced similar challenges (and wins) and discover different tools/resources they used


  • An intermediary, or funder, or researcher who supports implementation and wants to better understand the practical applications of implementation science



  • A graduate student who wants to prepare for what real-world implementation looks like and add to your toolbox to better equip yourself



…you’re in the right place.


We will show you how the Implementing Change Community (ICC) will give you the support, sense of connection, and inspiration to reach your implementation goals.

By joining this community, you’ll:

Experience a circle of support around you so you no longer feel isolated.


Be energized by the connections you’re making with others who have been in a similar situation to yours as well as those who have been in far better (and far worse) ones.


Strengthen your knowledge of the different theories, models, frameworks, and approaches that are key to implementation (and implementing well).


Participate in deep dive events on important topics, like adaptations and equity.


Be able to better identify the needs and gaps in your work as well as how you approach your tasks (and who to reach out to for help).


Make more informed and strategic progress towards your personal and professional implementation goals with greater confidence and ease.


Be exposed to a growing collection of resources that have been gathered and developed specifically for you and your fellow ICC members.


Observe and have the opportunity to participate in live implementation coaching sessions with Dr. Julia Moore and Sobia Khan.


Have more joy while implementing.


“Don’t miss this opportunity to gain new insights into implementation science from these amazing facilitators. I attended a workshop they presented. Both the content and facilitation was insightful, engaging, and most of all, informative. A must do for anyone leading change!”


- Carla Williams (TCI workshop participant)

The Implementing Change Community (ICC) is our way of taking our vision of a world where thousands of people working across various sectors are able to apply implementation science to design, implement, spread, and scale change initiatives one step further into reality.


We want to help you to make connections, keep you connected with others, and support you with what we know. Plus, we want to provide you with insights on cutting-edge research and methods.


But we also want to make sure you’re getting what you need out of the ICC, so your feedback and suggestions are always welcome.

She has also developed organization-specific capacity related to implementation science and systems thinking, and has supported organizations to adopt implementation science as a strategic aim.

Implementation is challenging and it’s easy to get derailed and discouraged.


We aim to make this an easier process — for everyone involved.


Our online courses are a great example of this. Here are some highlights from participants:

You might have some questions, such as:


I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed by what’s available. How do I know if I’ll have time for this?

The Implementing Change Community doesn’t come with any time requirements. While we encourage you to use the online space to connect with others, we also understand that life and work can be busy! The ICC is meant to be a resource for you, so it’s available whenever you have the time for it. You can join when you are available or when you need help. The implementation coaching sessions are also recorded, so you can always loop back to them later, and we provide a list of topics and resources that were discussed and shared in the Q&A sessions.


I’m a seasoned implementer. What would I get out of being a member?

We created this community for professionals who have received at least some training in applying implementation science in practice and are looking for additional support. So, even if you are well into your implementation career, we place high value on the connections you’ll make through the ICC as well as the new tips and tricks you’ll learn from our various resources. You will have opportunities to connect and collaborate with others who work in a similar space. You will be able to ask questions in a safe space about the challenging aspects of implementation (e.g., what to do after something fails, when leadership is not on board…). Plus, as a more seasoned implementer, you will have opportunities to support more junior implementers – this is one of the best ways to strengthen your own knowledge and skills. We are hoping a wide range of experience levels will be represented so we can all grow together.


I’m fairly new to implementation. Does it make sense for me to join?

Of course! By joining the ICC, you’ll get to meet a wide range of professionals and learn more about the world of implementation. Through our implementation coaching and Q&A sessions as well as the additional resources we’ll be providing, we think it’ll help to provide some clarity on which topics to focus on. And our two signature online courses are both offered annually, so if you haven’t trained with us before, the ICC would complement your learning well!


How long will my membership last?

Your ICC membership period aligns with the calendar year. That means that no matter when you join, your access will end on December 31, 2021. We wanted to make this community accessible, so we’re keeping the doors open for whenever it’s most convenient for you to join. Also, since we’ll be providing recordings of our implementation coaching sessions and a list of topics and resources that were discussed and shared in our Q&A sessions, you’ll be able to easily check out what we’ve been up to!


Do you offer any discounts?

Yes! We offer discounts for past Designing for Implementation participants, past Implementation, Spread, and Scale participants, groups of 3+ employees from the same organization, full-time students, and Individuals in low- and middle-income middle-income countries as defined by the World Bank.

Please e-mail [email protected] for more information.

You should join the Implementing Change Community if you’re motivated by any of the following:


  • Whether you’ve worked on too many interventions to count or you’re just getting started on your implementation journey, we all need help and support, especially in times as difficult as these.


  • You want to learn more about how implementation can be practically applied and hear from real humans about their experiences.


  • You want clarity about all of the theories, models, frameworks, and approaches out there. You just want practical guidance and recommendations.


That’s why you’re ready to take action and join our hands-on community that can dramatically affect how you approach and experience implementation.

We are passionate about what we do and can't wait to welcome you to this exciting new initiative of ours!


I spent a long time working in implementation and knowledge translation feeling isolated, alone, and without anyone to turn to. I faced huge implementation challenges – and, yes, even implementation failures – which left me feeling embarrassed and defeated. It was only after many years of working with other implementers around the world that I realized that my experience was not unique – many implementers function in isolation. We’re so often tasked with solving complex problems and figuring out how to put implementation science in action with minimal support.

But it doesn’t have to be like that.

I wish a community like this existed when I started my work in implementation over a decade ago. That’s why we at TCI created the Implementing Change Community, so that everyone can receive the support you know — as well as I do — we all need.

- Julia E. Moore
