Continuous Improvement

The Center for Transformational Learning has adopted the improvement research approach from the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. It involves six core principles of improvement.

  1. Make the work problem-specific and user-centered.
  2. Variation in performance is the core problem to address.
  3. See the system that produces the current outcomes.
  4. We cannot improve at scale what we cannot measure.
  5. Anchor practice improvement in disciplined inquiry.
  6. Accelerate improvements through networked communities.

We use the following template as a way of identifying all the primary drivers and secondary drivers before creating an initial list of change ideas (click image for an enlarged view).

Initial Change Ideas

Initial change ideas are implemented through a process called Plan, Do, Study, Act (PDSA).
