What We’re Reading: Inside the Command Center — How Successful Large-Scale Change Efforts Make Relentless Day-to-Day Progress

March 22, 2017

We are gearing up for our 2017 Summit on Improvement in Education by reading an article by keynote speakers Joe McCannon and Becky Kanis Margiotta from The Billions Institute. They say: “While reflective planning and thoughtful strategy are important, the rare movements that really thrive also demonstrate a set of daily work habits that are strikingly distinct from those that stall. They relentlessly root out the trappings of ‘business as usual’ — long meetings, painstaking consensus-building processes, endless email chains, to name a few — and create a ‘command center,’ an operating culture that orients them toward rapid movement, boundless energy, and efficient execution.” We are intrigued by this article, “Inside the Command Center: How Successful Large-scale Change Efforts Make Relentless Day-to-day Progress,” and can’t wait to learn more at the Summit.
