Intervention Testing, Piloting, and Staging Archived Webinar
This Intervention Testing, Piloting, and Staging archived webinar provides an overview of factors to consider when moving from the adaptation or design process into usability testing, pilot testing, and staging or scaling up a new intervention. The companion guide contains activities designed to help agency teams explore how they might use the strategies presented in the recorded webinar to identify possible roadblocks and make needed adjustments before large-scale implementation, target resources strategically, and learn from earlier results.
Setting the Stage for Implementation Success: Intervention Testing, Piloting, and Staging
Summarizes the process of how to use testing and piloting of a new intervention to identify possible roadblocks, make needed adjustments before large-scale implementation, and plan staging to target resources strategically and learn from earlier results. The intervention testing, piloting, and staging webinar provides an overview of how an agency might use a structured approach to conduct a “trial run” and roll out an intervention effectively, and includes stories from the field on what testing, piloting, and scaling up an intervention looks like in practice.
These Intervention Testing, Piloting, and Staging videos help deepen your understanding of how to develop strategies and sequence tasks to test, pilot, and stage new interventions as part of the change and implementation process. As you watch, record your ideas and questions in the related workbook to help you apply what you are learning to your own practice.

Video 1: Overview
Provides an overview of essential functions for conducting usability testing where needed, determining the need for piloting a new program or intervention, and planning to stage and scale up implementation of a new program or intervention.
Video 2: Create a Usability Testing Plan
Explores the planning task of creating a usability testing plan to try critical intervention components and implementation procedures to see how they work.
Video 3: Conduct Testing, Analyze Results
Presents how teams can conduct usability testing, analyze results, and make adjustments to intervention implementation plans.
Video 4: Determine an Approach and Develop a Plan
Examines how teams can determine an approach and develop a plan for pilot testing.
Video 5: Identify and Recruit Sites
Describes how teams plan and develop strategies to identify and recruit pilot testing sites.
Video 6: Conduct Pilot Testing
Presents how to conduct pilot testing for a new intervention.
Video 7: Assess Results, Review Progress, and Make Adjustments
Explores the task of assessing the results of the pilot, reviewing progress, and making adjustments before large-scale implementation of an intervention.
Video 8: Refine Plans for Staging the Intervention
Explores the task of developing plans to stage and scale up an intervention for implementation on a larger scale in a sustainable way.
Video 9: Identify Sites and Sequencing
Describes the tasks of identifying sites and sequencing to have a plan for where to implement the intervention and how expansion of it should occur.
Video 10: Build Capacity and Scale Up
Examines tasks of building capacity to implement the intervention in new locations or with new populations in a sustainable way and scaling up the intervention.
Video 11: Review Progress and Benchmarks
Explores the tasks of routine monitoring and checking in with identified benchmarks or short-term outcomes.
