ERIC Digest.


This digest summarizes a longer document with the same title concerning the introduction of enduring innovations into a higher education organization. Organizational change involves three steps: (1) mobilization, (2) implementation, and (3) institutionalization. Without institutionalization, the innovation is likely to be terminated no matter how well it is communicated and implemented. Factors influencing longevity of innovations include the intensity of direction and support from organizational leaders, the need for proper communication and decision making to discover the innovation's essential features for clearer identification and analysis, and the need for the innovation to be challenged in order to test its necessity and appropriateness for organizational improvement. Learning organizations can become innovative communities (where such innovation results in productive behavior) if organizational members are properly informed, thus allowing them to control what happens to them as members of the community. An organization's leaders and members must be flexible in developing innovations and setting levels at which these changes will achieve institutionalization. (GLR)
