Once the structural components of the initiative are in place, the process of work within the service system includes first identifying a priority area. The priority area must be data-informed, momentum-building, that are inclusive and extend beyond the status quo. Once a priority is identified, associated services will be mapped out to identify any gaps. Because organizations may have to adjust existing programs or make changes as part of the continuous improvement work, on-going collaboration and relationship-building is essential. In identifying service gaps, best practices will be identified and shared across organizations, collaborative projects will be created- culminating in advocacy and development of a common agenda- the community plan.
