Use these tools to assist you in developing and implementing a scale-up strategy.
Planning for scale-up should start from the earliest stages of program design.
Before developing a scaling plan, there are a number of key questions, as laid out in the resources below, that you should be able to answer about your organization, including the vision and capacity for scale-up.
After a scale-up plan has been developed, a first priority is to work toward the necessary pre-conditions for scaling (e.g., by building support from key stakeholders and raising necessary funds).
When scaling up, one should continuously build organizational capacity (not just in size but in skills and expertise) and track progress.
Tools and checklists
These tools can be customized to the needs of your organization to help you plan for and manage scale-up.
