The PPI Implementation Cycle
- Design: An organization’s management team designs a plan for PPI administration and analysis within their organization.
- Collect: Staff members collect PPI survey answers from respondents.
- Report: PPI data is reported accurately and with indicators that matter to management.
- Understand: Management achieves a deeper understanding of the lives of survey respondents.
- Decide: Management applies new knowledge and understanding to strategic decision-making.
The PPI should be administered repeatedly at an interval determined by the organization so that management can track client poverty over time. Each time the PPI is administered, the organization will have the chance to fine-tune the process.
