Change and Implementation at a Glance: Intervention Testing, Piloting, and Staging
A summary of the key takeaways and steps of testing, piloting, and staging an intervention as part of a change and implementation process.
Before an agency launches a new program or intervention on a large scale, components or procedures should be tested, implementation should be piloted on a small scale, and/or the intervention should be introduced gradually. These processes allow agencies to assess, make adjustments, and plan for needed supports for sustainable, wide-scale implementation.
