Active Implementation is an example of bottom up development (Pülzl & Treib, 2006; Sabatier, 1986), where the experience of doing the work is examined and the process of doing the work is improved with discernible outcomes in practice (Fixsen & Blase, 2018). Reality is a severe disciplinarian. Good ideas, concepts, approaches, methods, and tools generated over the decades have been used in practice and only the effective, efficient, and repeatable examples have survived the tests of usability and effectiveness in practice.
A summary of 25 years of using data to develop effective implementation and scaling of an evidence-based program and another 25 years of sustained use and expansion. Implementation Drivers, organization factors, and enabling contexts identified and used successfully during this time.
Expert Purveyors and Implementers
A summary of intensive nominal group process results from researchers who had developed and successfully replicated their program, and from implementers of those programs. These meetings operationalized many of the Active Implementation Frameworks.
Researchers Developing Innovations
Findings from a structured interview process with 64 developers of identified evidence-based programs. Usable Innovations and Implementation Drivers were identified in the process.
