Schools are working through the most disruptive period in the history of modern education, facing a pandemic, economic problems, social justice issues, and rapid technological change all at once. But even after the pandemic ends, the pace of change is likely to continue quickening. This episode will focus on examining the new strategies, tactics, and technologies K-12 education leaders are using to make decisions about complex problems.
We’ll answer your questions and others including:
- How can you get away from strategies that fail in execution because of insufficient coordination?
- How do you break down departmental silos that have their own agendas and approaches for evaluating the effectiveness of programs?
- Is it possible to limit emotion and politics in big decisions?
- How to avoid the paralysis that often happens when there are too many alternatives or choices.
