This thesis examines the factors that influence rapid prototyping innovation implementation. Research was conducted to develop a qualitative, descriptive model of factors influencing user acceptance and organization implementation. The model reflected a review of the literature on innovation acceptance, implementation of change, human factors in technology transfer, and organizational development; a review of related Navy-specific findings and the elements of rapid prototyping; a case study of International Research Institute's Joint Operational Tactical System evolution as a real world example; and interviews and correspondence with personnel representing "players" in the development and utilization process. This model is useful in structuring thinking about the problems of innovation implementation, identifying areas where future research on the acceptance process may have the greatest impact, and may be extended to provide direction for timely integration of future innovative efforts through rapid prototyping
