Good people fail in disconnected systems.

How can we really make improvement work across an organization? What enables people to solve problems and make the best decisions at every level? We begin by helping people understand improvement is a connected, system-wide process deeply rooted in the capabilities of the people within the organization.  Today, we hear from an award-winning Superintendent, and our Director of Thought Leadership, Dr. Pat Greco, who has supported an organization through hardwiring improvement from the boardroom to the classroom. Listen as Pat and Janet discuss the fundamentals of classroom improvement and the problem with viewing people as job titles in our organizations.

This episode answers questions such as:

  • What obstacles stop people from getting on board with continuous improvement in classrooms?
  • Why do improvement processes benefit all people in organizations?
  • What are the fundamentals of improvement and why are they so important?
