What Makes Innovation Work in Massachusetts?: Strategies for State and Local Systems.
Widmer, Jeanne Maguire
This study describes models of diffusion that combine the efforts of a State agency with the efforts of local school systems to effect change and examines the most recent research on innovation adoption. It provides a paradigm that describes the following elements: (1) the optimum installation process for an innovation, (2) the kinds of school system environments most conducive to adopting innovations, (3) State and local support strategies that most frequently result in adoption, (4) the most effective leadership styles for diffusers, and (5) the kinds of evaluation and dissemination techniques that work best. Data is keyed to local and State facilitators of change efforts. (Author/MLF)
