This worksheet is designed to help organizations identify barriers that might hinder the transfer of best practices among individuals, teams, locations, or business units.  The worksheet covers six potential barriers:

  1. absorptive capacity of the recipient adopting the best practice,
  2. level of understanding of the practice,
  3. quality of the relationship between source and recipient of the best practice,
  4. level of organizational support for transfer activities,
  5. motivation of the source to share its practice, and
  6. willingness of the recipient to accept the new practice.
