A Guide to Implementation of Training Products. Research Report 1350.
Gray, Thomas; And Others
This guide describes a strategy for implementing new training products in operational units of the United States Army. Its purpose is to help the training developer ensure that units use and sustain new products once they are introduced. An introduction discusses the need for this guide, its benefits, and the organization of the guide. The guide is organized into four major blocks. Block 1 provides procedures for doing an implementation analysis to identify problems likely to be encountered during implementation. In Block 2, procedures are outlined for planning an implementation program. Selecting implementation strategies and developing a plan for monitoring and feedback are discussed. Block 3 covers execution of an implementation program composed of four stages--orientation, fielding, trial, and integration--with each stage consisting of three phases: preparation, execution, and success indicators. Block 4 presents procedures for monitoring and feedback. Worksheets are provided throughout the guide to help individuals develop and carry out a successful implementation program. (YLB)
