Discussion 1: Identifying Needed Resources
Logistical support will be of some concern to those making the final decision about which alternative to select. In this discussion, provide some insight into the logistical support that will be needed for each of the alternatives you have identified. You do not need to provide detailed insight into staffing requirements such as you would in a class on human resource management. You do not have to provide detailed financial amounts, such as you might in a budgeting class. The goal of this discussion is simply to provide some insight into the resources needed for each of the alternatives. See following attachments for information on topic and subject: Annotated Outline, and Identifying the Problems Assignment. This discussion should contribute to your analysis of those issues in your final paper. For your initial post, for each alternative, respond to the following:
· What type of additional staffing might you need for each alternative, or what training would be needed for current staff?
· What type of additional funding might you need to carry out this work, or what type of additional grants might be usable to support these alternatives?
· If there will be any new technologies required to carry out this work, or any type of specialized logistical support in terms of equipment or supplies, please describe that for each alternative.
Please support your ideas with recent, scholarly sources that are properly cited and referenced in APA style.
Discussion 2: Monitoring Implementation Activities
For your initial post, for each alternative you have proposed, provide some insight into how you might monitor ongoing progress after an alternative has been implemented. See following attachments for information on topic and subject: Annotated Outline, and Identifying the Problems Assignment. For each alternative, provide some insight into:
· What might you use as benchmarks to determine progress?
· What metrics might be used to assess progress at each benchmark?
· What might be done to resolve any issues if progress is not as planned?
