Abstract or Summary
  • This report examines the Bridge Program efforts undertaken, methods used, obstacles encountered, accomplishments, and lessons learned. It is not a performance evaluation; it is a case study focusing on the social, organizational and institutional dynamics of transforming a vision for environmental streamlining into a working program. The Bridge Program is complex as well as innovative. The report therefore emphasizes particular innovative aspects of the program, requiring significant collaborative relationships, rather than describing all program facets in detail.
