Abstract : The purpose of this special issue of Concepts is to carry that education process one step further. We have bought together current information on a selected group of the actions that program managers can incorporate into their programs. Each of these actions is covered in a separate article. The articles emphasize the practical factors a program manager should consider in deciding if the action can benefit his program, including descriptions of how the actions have been used in other programs. The articles also identify policy documents, procedural directives, and other information sources that a program manager can use in implementing the actions.
