The role of a creative leader is not to have all the ideas; it's to create a culture where everyone can have ideas and feel that they're valued.
Sir Ken Robinson on Creative Leadership
CatapultEd combines three strategies into a framework that is unique to the needs of K-12 education innovation; human-centered design (Build), crowd-based ideation (Engage), and lean startup methodologies (Launch). Our goal is to work with you to tap into the potential of your stakeholders, whether staff, students, or community members, in order to identify and test the best ideas for sustaining innovation.
When you incorporate these three strategies into your innovation work, not only will you engage your stakeholders by seeking their unique insight into problems or opportunities but their active participation in bringing these ideas to life will positively impact the culture of your organization by increasing ownership, distributing leadership, and improving partnerships. This culture shift creates a new agility that permeates the organization, leading to the identification and development of sustaining innovations and a more responsive approach to solving problems that impact student learning.
We look forward to doing this work with you.
"We are committed to this framework because it is grounded in empathy, drives equity and is a
sustainable innovation and strategic planning strategy."
- Kristin Daniels, CatapultEd CEO
