Implementation Consulting Collaborative – Fall 2023
The National Center for State Courts is accepting applications to participate in the Implementation Consulting Collaborative. The Implementation Consulting Collaborative (ICC) provides training and coaching to help build the capacity of courts to successfully implement and sustain changes in policy and practice.
ICC participants will be trained in the PHASE framework to assess their court's readiness to implement new efforts, anticipate outcomes of new policies and practices, identify threats, ensure resources, and support, and develop individualized action plans. Over 12 months, participants will engage in a multi-stage coaching method to guide your court’s implementation process.
The application process is now closed. The ICC applications are currently under review, and the selected applicants will be announced on Friday, September 15, 2023.
