If you are an organization development consultant, manager, leader, or change agent, Mastering Systems Change, is crucual. Please join us for a three part series on systems change in April, May, and June.
We begin the series with efforts to create change in US public schools.
Both the US public and experts agree, major change is needed. The drop out crisis, America’s drop in international rankings, the widening achievement gap and a disengaged, under-challenged youth are calling upon this nation not to reform its educational system, but to transform it.
Join Julie Wilson, Tim Lucas, and Tom Bigda-Peyton, who share decades of experience in education and systems change for case studies, tools, and concepts.
