Strategies for Institutionalizing Telecommunications Demonstrations: A Review of Innovation Barriers and Program Alternatives. Final Report #146-04.
Kalba, Konrad K.; Savage, Maria
This report identifies factors that have an influence on the successful institutionalization and transfer of innovative uses of telecommunications. It examines which factors promote or deter the institutionalization of demonstration projects in the public service field, as well as alternative strategies for institutionalization and innovation diffusion. Barriers to successful institutionalization and transfer are identified through a review of the literature on demonstration projects conducted by other programs and agencies. Institutionalization-related results of a survey of recent public service experiments and demonstrations are then examined. Based on these reviews, several options for the Department of Education's Telecommunications Demonstration Program are identified. (LMM)
