Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
Review your findings on the three organizations you selected in the Module 4 assignment.
Establish criteria for determining the effectiveness of advocacy policy implementation efforts in the organizations.
From the criteria, construct an evaluation instrument of best practices for policy implementation.
Use the instrument to rate the three organizations on the established criteria. Which organization did you perceive as being the most effective and why?
Assemble your criteria and evaluation instrument in a 2-to 3-page Word or text document.
