The IDEAS Tool
The heart of the program is a 7-step planning tool called IDEAS – Intervention Design and Analysis Scorecard. The scorecard approach helps front-line employees develop a comprehensive business case that analyzes costs, benefits, barriers and opportunities for each proposed solution. Worksheets and quick reference guides walk you through each step in the process. Read about the IDEAS Tool in these peer-reviewed publications:
