Successful Projects: Examining the Research. Keys to Community Involvement Series: 8.
This booklet describes implementation processes that are most likely to bring project success. The experiences of the Rural Education Program in the field, together with the findings of the implementation research, lead the author to believe that a successful implementation process is one that utilizes mutual adaptation. This process promotes interaction and mutual influence between the agency, the community, and the project plan. It relies on continuous problem-solving to make sure that within a project the training is focused on day-to-day issues, the materials are adapted to local needs, and there are sufficient participants to build project morale. Implementation becomes an organizational process that depends vitally on human interactions. (Author/MLF)
