From Systems Thinking

to Systemic Action

April 14, 2010

Goal for February 13th Meeting

Explore the per pupil cost of non instructional systems.

Take the next steps

Determine a plan of action based on the data

…….and if eliminated or reduced would not harm learning

• Complete the spreadsheet for at least one non instructional system to determine the baseline cost per pupil for your district.

• Develop hypothesis

• Bring to April meeting!

• Wiki website:

What systems?

What hypothesis?

Question 4:

• Definitive Process

• Test Hypothesis

• Collect Data

• Implementation

P = Plan Define system, Assess the current situation, Analyze causes

D = Do Try out the improvement theory

S = Study Study the results

A = Act Standardize improvements, plan for continuous improvements

Determine the root cause.

One definition –

"The cause of a problem which, if adequately addressed, will prevent a recurrence of that problem".

Identify the problem.

By asking the question "why” five times, the root cause of a problem is often identified as a procedural, or management, shortcoming. Addressing these root causes often requires a change of thinking and some pain and effort, but the results will be much longer-lasting and higher-value than correcting individual failures.

W. Edwards Deming's estimated that 94 to 97 percent of our problems stem from the system with the remaining problems caused by human error or poor judgment.

• Based on per pupil cost worksheets

• What system will you test?
