Can we deliver a customized practicum to build a foundational and shared understanding of improvement science?
Shift conducted a customized Improvement Methods for Equity practicum for Jobs for the Future, an organization that supports a network of networks, including 17 statewide Student Success Centers, to reach and better meet the needs of historically underrepresented and underserved populations. Their goal is to increase completion rates, close equity gaps, and strengthen communities.
For Shift, this was an opportunity to refine IM4E and deliver it as a practicum to a single client. We gained deeper understanding of what conditions need to be true for an organization to jump into the work of improvement and apply improvement skills as they learn them.
