Impact Thinking

Figuring out how to improve educational outcomes.

All educators want to positively impact organisational and learning outcomes through their improvement work. Yet, despite the best intentions, educational improvement plans are often overcrowded, filled with buzz-language and lack a precise articulation of what we are specifically trying to achieve. It is time for educational leadership to be given new approaches and tools to craft strategic clarity from confusion.

Key takeaways include:

  • Understand the 3 common enemies of impact thinking and how to avoid them
  • Develop the confidence to focus on less but better
  • The importance of creating precision, alignment and coherence in our strategic thinking
  • Setting priorities, framing the right problems and crafting pathways to impact
  • Using visual tools to sharpen and refine team strategic thinking
