Description: Strategic planning is necessary to ensure that the vision and design for a Comprehensive System of Learning Supports are effectively and efficiently implemented. The plan spells out an answer to: How do we get there from here?

Given that the work involves major systemic changes, the focus is on four major phases:

  1. Creating Readiness and Commitment: enhancing the climate/culture/conditions for innovative systemic change

  2. Start-up and phase in ? initial implementation: adapting and phasing-in a prototype with well-designed infrastructure and capacity building

  3. Sustaining, evolving, and enhancing outcomes: ensuring institutionalization, maintenance, momentum, and progress

  4. Ongoing evolution: replication to scale and creative renewal.
