A research-based, practical guide helps educators understand, evaluate, and facilitate the change process

Implementing Change continues to examine on-the-ground change processes and practical strategies while adding new features, new material and the most current research. Based primarily on the Concerns Based Adoption Model (CBAM), this user-friendly text focuses on introducing constructs that can be used by those engaged in creating, implementing, and sustaining change processes as well as those who are evaluating and studying change. Rather than maintaining a bird’s eye view of change processes, each chapter introduces a research-based, research-verified construct about change that captures the complexity of implementing change and the diversity of reactions to it. With a stress on pedagogical aids, each chapter incorporates practical examples, sample research, case studies, reflection questions, and examples of common roadblocks to change.
