This book by authors Shirley M. Hord, William L. Rutherford, Leslie Huling-Austin, and Gene E. Hall provides new insights and understandings about school change. Its powerful message brings a new understanding about the roles and personal needs of the people involved in a change process. It hits the heart of the problems by providing strategies of the total management of an innovation destined for success. The first strategy presented provides the means to both introduce the change or innovation and monitor the anticipated variety and diversity of implementation. The second strategy focuses on the target of the change process, the teacher. The concept of the levels of use of the innovation provides the third strategy, which identifies the degree to which teachers are using the new practices. 90 pages
