Continuous Program Improvement

Below please find a list of continuous program improvement tools.

  • LINCS Tool Orientation Video
    This 10 minute video introduces the LINCS Self-Assessment Tool and Asset Map, a two-part system for assessing regional needs and resources for professional development and strategically planning for continual program improvement.
  • LINCS Tool Demonstration Video
    This 6 minute video will provide you with an example of the brainstorming and planning process a region might use when working with these tools.
  • LINCS Self-Assessment
    The LINCS Professional Development Center developed a State Leadership Self-Assessment Tool to help states gauge their priorities and implementation readiness for meeting the state leadership activity requirements in Section 223 of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). By using the tool to focus on regional rather than state-level considerations, managers and leadership teams can use this assessment to improve their regional professional development strategy and activities.
  • LINCS Asset Map
    The Asset Map is intended to help state teams organize and plan how they will implement and document items and descriptors in the State Leadership Self-Assessment; the two tools are intended to inform one another. Like the Self-Assessment, program leadership should use this tool to focus on regional rather than state-level resources and milestones.
  • Evalution Tools for Continuous Program Improvement
  • SWOT Analysis Sheet and Information for Strategic Planning
    Leaders should complete one SWOT sheet for each goal their program is trying to achieve. The Development Impact and You (DIY) toolkit provides a downloadable form along with supporting information and resources.
  • SBI: Standards and Supports
