The Puget Sound Continuous Improvement Summit Series was designed to build capacity among regional organizations to use continuous improvement methods in service of increasing equity in educational outcomes. This series provided the opportunity for organizations in the Puget Sound region to learn and apply continuous improvement methods in person and virtually, as well as to contextualize methods through improvement coaching for their improvement initiatives.
The tools in this workbook are intended to guide improvement communities to continuously probe the systems in which they work to build a deeper, shared understanding of how they produce inequitable outcomes and identify where there are opportunities to make structural changes. While these tools are important, they are only as powerful as the perspectives in the room and the facilitation to draw out their lived experiences. These methods and tools are timeless and can be applied with different improvement initiatives and community members.
