A Contigency Model for Predicting Institutionalization of Innovation Across Divergent Organizations.
Howes, Nancy J.
This study was undertaken to compare the variables related to the successful institutionalization of changes across divergent organizations, and to design, through cross-validation, an interorganization model of change. Descriptive survey questionnaires and structured interviews were the instruments used. The respondent sample consisted of 1,500 subjects, representative of those individuals in elementary school, higher education institutions, and correctional facilities, who were involved in the change process in their organizations. Data were analyzed through an item analysis, factor analysis, and multiple regression technique. The designed change model predicted more than 60 percent of the variance related to institutionalization of a change program. (Author)
