Purpose


The Implementers Workgroup exists as a community of practice, focused on the sharing and exchanging of ideas, issues, and experiences in an open and collaborative environment regarding post-implementation matters and practices related to Direct whether technical, operational, or logistical in nature, including Direct Project specifications and implementation guides, adoption efforts, and innovative uses and deployments. It’s a forum for a peer-to-peer exchange of ideas, thoughts, and practices for project leaders within the Direct community.

The Implementers Workgroup was once known as the Implementation Geographies Workgroup (IGW). You can find information and documents related to the IGW's initial pilot stage and its subsequent adoption and implementation stage at the IGW Pilot Stage Archive (2010-2011) and IGW Adoption and Implementation Stage Archive (2012-2015) wiki pages respectively. These contain a bounty of useful information and historical context.
