|Main content of advisory report delivered by facilitator||Main content of action plan a constructed by management team|
|School A||i) professionalize the teams;||
The director, assisted by an HM facilitator, translated the recommendations into an action plan with three goals, six changes and a set of quick wins.|
GOALS: i) unambiguous management control; ii) competence and professionalism in the teams, and iii) adequate facilities
CHANGES: (i) compliance to the workload policy, (ii) structured performance reviews; (iii) a continuous dialogue on the organization of the educational programs; (iv) a leading team activities plan; (v) weekly work meetings; and (vi) personalized competence development plans.
QUICK WINS: create adequate facilities by creating a staff room at both locations; place extra walls in some classrooms; place beamers in all class rooms; improve the service by the facilitation services office.
|(ii) professionalize the management;|
|(iii) improve the administrative support and facilities.|
|School B||(i) create adequate and effective management control by installing a management team that is approachable, coaching and leading;||
The directors of the management team decided to integrate the facilitator’s recommendations in the annual agreements (ie a Management Contract) they made with the Executive Board, instead of writing a separate action planb. A third party coach was attracted to support teams in a previously initiated change towards becoming self-managing.|
GOALS in the Management Contract were formulated in five headlines: i) strategy; ii) education; iii) personnel; iv) organization; and v) business operations.
The most important CHANGE per headline was: i) form alliances with care partners in the region; ii) change the class bound curriculum of two educational programs into more concentrated ‘learning units’; iii) implement performance review policies; iv) make teams function as self-managing units; and v) develop a multi-annual housing plan for the school.
No QUICK WINS were formulated.
|(ii) strengthen the power of teams within the school, by letting them develop a team program that can guide their daily work and makes them actually ‘self-managing’;|
|(iii) make administrative procedures more efficient.|
