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.
