those organizations that choose to adopt an innovation, the next
phase of the process is the implementation of the innovation (see
Figure 2). As depicted in Figure 2, variables that explain the
outcomes of the implementation process are likely to span several
levels from the innovation itself to characteristics of the dyadic
relationship between the CCOE and the adopting organization. The
examples provided in Figure 2 for Level 1 through Level 4 predictors
of implementation outcomes all are expected to be positively linked
to the success of implementation efforts.

Influencing Implementation Outcomes
summary, two models provide the framework for hypothesis testing.
The Phase 1 model (i.e., adoption decision) will be tested with
all willing organizations that have been approached by one or
more of the four CCOEs. The Phase 2 implementation model will
be tested with organizations that have decided to adopt one of
the four innovations of interest in this research.
