The senior management team has sent you their appreciation as well as feedback on your feasibility study for your proposed economic initiative. They believe your proposal has the potential to benefit the organization in both the short and long term. The final step in this process is to create a comprehensive implementation plan for your proposed initiative. This plan must include a budget of relevant expected material, labor, and capital costs for the first five years of the initiative (see Resources for some examples and guides on budget planning), as well as projected earnings from the initiative for the care setting. You must also include a plan and timeline for implementing the initiative, an analysis of how it may affect other aspects of the care setting, an explanation of how it will remain viable in the face of environmental changes, and adequate relevant supporting evidence.

You have been asked to include the following in your 6–10-page plan. Please keep in mind that the bullet points below correspond to grading criteria in the scoring guide. Make certain that your work addresses each of the bullets below. You should also read the scoring guide and the Guiding Questions: Implementation Plan for a New Economic Opportunity document, both of which are linked in the Resources, to better understand the performance levels that correspond to each grading criterion:
