Implementation Monitoring: A Role for Evaluators in Helping New Programs Succeed.
Gray, Wayne D.
This paper presents a framework for monitoring implementation which defines a process for implementing new programs into organizations. The process requires a team of monitors who examine the adequacy of implementation plans and look at the effect of plan execution upon the organization, individual, and new program. Immediate feedback is provided to adjust the implementation effort to better help the new program succeed. The framework defines questions to ask during the period when implementation is occurring. It shows why these questions are important, how they interrelate, and how they can be used to increase the implementation of innovations as well as to further the study of implementation processes. An optimal use of the framework would be to improve the use of new programs by implementation monitoring. The framework may be used to raise the awareness in organizations, and among evaluators, of the issues involved in implementing new programs. (DWH)
