CBAM is a conceptual framework that provides tools and techniques for facilitating and assessing the implementation of new innovations or reform initiatives. The underlying premise of CBAM is implementing a new initiative requires more than the provision of materials, resources, and training; it requires the understanding that each person involved will respond to the new initiative with unique attitudes and beliefs. The three diagnostic dimensions of CBAM provide tools and techniques that enable leaders to gauge staff concerns and program use.
