Weekend
Blast from the past: what was I concerned about on this date in last year?

I thought it would be interesting to take a backwards glance to see what were the issues on this date last year.

This time last year I published two articles, one of which was about the launch of the then-new Training and Development Agency.

Change Management #4

Terry FreedmanYou might wonder what qualifies me to write about cultural change in an organisation. Well, Iíve done it several times, and I thought Iíd set myself the challenge of trying to describe some of the success stories Iíve enjoyed in 250 words or fewer.

My main motivation in writing these vignettes is that I keep meeting depressed people: people who are in such a dire situation that they have started to believe that they will never be able to change it.

So what I should like to do is provide very brief case studies comprising the before and after, but not the during: my aim is to uplift, rather than instruct, in these stories. That's why I aim to publish them on a Friday: so you can go home full of hope rather than despondency!

This week's vignette concerns being timetabled for two hour lessons, with some pretty challenging (behaviour-wise) kids.

This week: getting teachers to change from using quills to using computers.

Last week I wrote about the transformation of the educational technology provision in a school. This week, I focus on the change in working practices I brought about in a Local Authority.
