It is essential to the success of a plan that there exists a strong implementation strategy to prevent the plan from becoming marginalized or forgotten.

Phase III: Implementation Strategies was presented to the community on December 2007.
Phase III: Implementation Strategies considers three factors that will affect the successful implementation of the comprehensive plan:

Phase III concludes with recommendations for future studies. View Phase III presentation...
