Motion Leadership and the “Ready-Fire-Aim” Metaphor: Relationships First | Laugh, Learn, and Lead Out Loud

Motion Leadership and the “Ready-Fire-Aim” Metaphor: Relationships First | Laugh, Learn, and Lead Out Loud | NKCS Educational Leadership | Scoop.it
In 1982, Peters and Waterman offered the metaphor ready-fire-aim to capture the action basis of high-performing companies that they studied. The concept was intuitively appealing but it was hard to find the savvy in there.

Avoiding “Unmitigated Disasters” — nashworld

Avoiding “Unmitigated Disasters” — nashworld | NKCS Educational Leadership | Scoop.it
Sean Nash's insight:

After stumbling upon the article, “Switch to e-books was ‘an unmitigated disaster,’ says school principal,” in my feed this past week, it occurred to me that there are increasingly predictable patterns surrounding stories of failed “innovation” in digital learning initiatives. Schools have been assigning computers to each child for some time now. And still, we continue to see stories like this in the media.

In short: we can do better.
