The management of innovation in instruction in English as a second language can benefit from the experience and techniques of management in the world of commerce as well as from theories and procedures in education. A systematic approach to the management of innovation emphasizes the importance of clearly defined objectives, evaluation that provides useful information, and conditions for successful change. These conditions include providing organization members with a clear picture of their roles and of the nature of the innovation, adjusting organizational procedures and arrangements to accommodate the innovation, retraining organization members as needed to carry out the innovation, providing the necessary resources, and providing appropriate supports and rewards to maintain participants' willingness to make implementation efforts.
