Introduction | About | Structure
This phase deals with the issues relating to the implementation of diversity management activities in the workplace. Using the DM programme plan developed in the last phase, the project team needs to determine which activities it will be possible to finance and begin to develop during the first year of the implementation programme. Before an activity can be implemented, the project team has to assess what resources, facilities and personnel are needed to implement the activity. It must be clear what the aims are, how to meet these aims, who is going to do what, when and how. It is also important to consider how to deal with resistance to activities and how to encourage employees to participate.
Communications are a key aspect of implementation - employees must be aware of which activities will be run, when they will be run and the procedures they need to follow to participate.
It is important to monitor and evaluate the activities when they are being run. Monitoring takes place at periodic intervals during an activity and offers the opportunity to adjust the programme to incorporate any changes due to unexpected events or delays. Evaluation takes place at the end of the activity and is used to assess whether the activity fulfilled its aims.
