This section introduces the first 3 of the 10 practical tips for successful PPD implementation:
– Tip #1 – A lot of work. Implementing a PPD involves huge coordination and mediation business. A lot of time and work needs to be invested in consultations and reaching out to people.
– Tip #2 – Plan a Phased and Inclusive Approach. Start by first assessing the field. Apply a diagnostic approach to PPD. The 12 issues can be measured each to better understand the wider environment in which the PPD takes place, and assess its success and challenges. After a large series of consultations, constituents need to be informed at various stages. Open communication about the process is essential for creating trust and inclusion.
– Tip #3 – Strong focus on targeted, measurable reforms. You need to be targeted in order to measure the outputs of reform. There are several outputs a PPD can yield, including 1) soft benefits such as trust, cohesion and social capital, and 2) hard, quantifiable outputs such as policy reforms, position papers and conferences.
