This chapter presents the process of policy implementation from both a theoretical and practical perspective. It deals with the concept of implementation from the perspective of classical theory on policy implementation and recent developments in this area. It defines the products of this stage of the policy process from an operational perspective, that is, the action plans and administrative products. It indicates the relationships between the different types of actors involved that need to be subject to a relational analysis so as to facilitate the identification of the factors behind the success and failure of a policy.

Keywords: policy implementation; classical theory; action plans; administrative products; policy implementation; actors; relational analysis
