Imagine that I came to your office because I had heard that your organization is struggling to produce results (a diagnosis you agree with), and that I’m here to provide solutions. My team is highly qualified and has expertise in organization management, quantitative analysis, and a bunch of other things that sound impressive. I’ve come up with some great ideas that have passed theoretical muster, and I’d like to share them with you. I’m here to help. I’m here to reform. Wouldn’t you accept the offer?

I recently had the rare opportunity to spend the better part of two days reflecting on my work. I spent those days with a group of visitors from Germany who came to Seattle to learn about an approach they have heard is gaining momentum in the U.S. as a way of improving education. They were interested in understanding how “cradle-to-career” Collective Impact initiatives work, and their potential application to improving education and closing achievement gaps in Germany.
