Representative Incidents in the Adoption Process.
Farrington, Jay A.; And Others
This paper presents three case studies of innovation, based on interviews with six adoption agents. Key episodes and incidents which illustrate important principles are drawn from the experiences of these adoption agents. The case studies offer examples of both success and failure--by both internal and external adoption agents. They also emphasize the fact that adoption is a long-term process, requiring good communication between the adoption agent and the adopters, and frequent evaluation of progress. (Author)
