This chapter deals with the initial implementation of a funded project. It describes developing the support and stakeholder networking necessary to conduct research. Field research differs dramatically from laboratory research in more than just locale. The field world in which the research actually gets mounted may be very different from the field world that existed 1, 2, or 3 years prior, when the research proposal was first developed. The chapter first details specific steps towards launching scientifically valid field research. It then discusses the stages for a community development model, from manualization, through efficacy and effectiveness trials, to dissemination.

Keywords:   implementation, funding, stakeholder, field research, proposal, valid, manualization, efficacy, effectiveness, dissemination
