Using Improvement Science to Catalyze Organizational Innovation & Growth
What is the problem we are trying to solve? What in our current system produced it? How will we know that a change is an improvement?
Schools remain relevant and effective by engaging in continuous improvement as they strive to fulfill their mission. School leaders must have the change management skills necessary to lead and support the planning, communication and implementation of improvements.
This workshop will deepen your understanding of Improvement Science, a systematic approach to identifying problems within your school, introducing the change most likely to address the problem and finding manageable ways to track who the change is working for or not and under what conditions. Understanding the impact of a change guides and justifies the investment of additional time, resources and personnel in that initiative.
Improvement Science helps those in leadership to focus their team on tight cycles of planning, action and reflection so that there is momentum and confidence in the efficacy of the changes that are being introduced.
You will be able to...
Explain the principles and practices of improvement science;
Apply improvement methods to real problems that your school is facing;
Anticipate and address challenges and roadblocks inherent when a change is introduced.
