Policy Implementation is the stage of policy-making between the establishment of a policy and the consequences of the policy for the people whom it affects. Implementation involves translating the goals and objectives of a policy into an operating, on going program.

The 3 elements are:

1. Creation of a new agency or assignment of a new responsibility to an old agency

2. Translation of policy goals into operational rules and development of guidelines for the program

3. Coordination of resources and personnel to achieve the intended goals.
