The implementation of a policy is considered as the most vital phase of the policy cycle as it is at this stage that the success or failure of a policy is determined. Adopted policies are put into effect and the proposed solution will be tested in the real world with all its organizational complexity. 

In late 2016, Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges (SBCTC) approved a comprehensive open licensing policy and offered a session that introduced the newly approved policy. SBCTC showcased how institutions’ open policies can be crafted, amended, and approved. 

This year's session will discuss SBCTC's year-long journey in the implementation and application of this policy. The session will highlight the infrastructure that SBCTC has established to support staff implementation of open licensing policy. This support system is composed of three interrelated elements including resources, professional development, and a community of practice.

In illustrating the support model used, the session will focus on sharing practical accounts and best practices learned through the implementation process. The strategies and principles used for each implementation stage will be presented with examples and templates. 

SBCTC considers this policy and implementation work as starting points for a more expansive/far reaching Open Policy that will eventually support not only the internal works but also all resources produced by fellow state government agencies. Presenters will discuss the longer-term goals of additional state agency outreach and uptake.
