A plan is only as valuable as the results it produces. Testing the plan before committing to it increases its value while identifying ways to make it more effective, efficient, and less expensive.
Whenever possible, Mission Enablers likes to include a small-scale trial of plan as the first step in the implementation process. When there is a limited implementation of the plan, the number of client, dollars, and staff members involved are minimized. The limited scope makes the process of adjusting the plan inexpensive. It also reduces the risk.
The first step in the full-scale implementation is to make adjustments based upon the results from the trial process.
