Responsive Implementation

Navigating the human-side of effective educational change.

Quality planning without effective implementation is useless. Educational implementation is particularly challenging because schools are complex-relational ecosystems.  In short, educational change is mostly about the people stuff.  As a result educational change is never a simple, linear and predictable process of delivering our plans over time.

Responsive Implementation provides a dynamic approach to implementing educational change that enables teams to learn by doing, adapt quickly and iterate towards their desired impact.

This compelling and practical presentation will help leaders to:

  • Examine the human-factors which slow down and derail evidence-informed change
  • Understand why ‘what works’ doesn’t always work across diverse settings
  • Be empowered by seeing implementation as an iterative and incremental process of learning by doing
  • De-risk change by running rapid cycles of testing and learning within their unique context
  • Overcome resistance by harnessing the science of behaviour change
  • Harnessing formative evaluation to adjust and course-correct
