Drawing from the business, management, and organizational literatures, this chapter considers several of the more common and well-researched organizational constructs and processes that may impact the uptake and sustainment of evidence-based practices (EBPs) in organizations. In particular, it focuses on organizational culture, organizational climate, strategic climates, leadership, organizational readiness for change, attitudes toward EBP, organizational development, and organizational process improvement. These factors are considered in relation to the questions and challenges of EBP implementation in health care, behavioral health, and social service settings. It is argued that leaders within organizations must pay attention to the context in which the implementation takes place to increase the likelihood of implementation success and long-term sustainment.

Keywords:   evidence-based practice, organizational culture, organizational climate, leadership, organizational development
