March 13, 2017
One of the six core principles of improvement says accelerate improvements through networked communities. Carnegie Fellow Jennifer Russell and colleagues have published “A Framework for the Initiation of Networked Improvement Communities” to explain the start-up model for networked improvement communities (NICs). The Teachers College Record article describes and provides examples of the five critical domains of NIC initiation activity: developing a theory of practice improvement; building a measurement and analytics infrastructure; learning and using improvement research methods; leading, organizing, and operating the network; and fostering the emergence of culture, norms, and identity consistent with network aims.
