Identify objectives and establish strategies at the management level, inform the implementation interface. Define measurements and accomplishments, but be adaptable. Create matrix for tracking in action. Dedicate the appropriate resources with the right timing. Build in review and adaptation. Decide who the gatekeepers are and why. Establish protocol. Decide who can participate and why. Encourage feedback. Set parameters to the media use – significance to strategies and building coalition.
