The Four A's of Adoption are practical and easy steps for transferring a successful practice from one location to another. The A's are based on the work of Rogers,1 Szulanski,2 Plsek,3 and a recent Kaiser Permanente (KP) study of transfer success factors conducted by the Care Experience Council (CEC).4 (See "Stealing Shamelessly," page 52.) In order to improve the likelihood of successful adoption, the Four A's were created to help leaders:

  • Raise awareness in their facility/Region that a better practice exists
  • Assess the probability of acceptance of the new practice
  • Develop alignment and support for the practice
  • Take action to implement the practice.
