Metz, Allison J. R.; Bowie, Lillian; Blase, Karen
This brief will define program replication, describe the critical role of "core components" in program replication, and outline seven activities that program developers and researchers can conduct to enhance the replicability of effective program models and facilitate their adoption by other organizations and programs. Outlined is seven specific activities program "developers" can carry out to enhance the replicability of evidence-based programs. We also encourage program "adopters" to focus on these activities, as well as to pursue the following: (1) seeking out information on core program components; (2) asking program developers or expert consultants for technical assistance and support during program implementation; (3) evaluating their replication efforts rigorously in order to refine core program components, assess the effects of program adaptations, and analyze program outcomes with a new target population; and (4) disseminating findings to the field.
