Welcome to this week’s issue. Today I have been working on the Start, Stop, Continue action planning framework. I wondered what other accompanying provocations we might use to extend the core routine. Below are my additions and elaborations - I hope they prove a useful tool to support your projects.

What practices do you need to START doing?
Outline some of the new ideas that you want to start?
What are the habits you want to start?
What negative practices do you need to STOP?
What are the low-impact processes which need to stop?
What do you need to stop investing in?
What established practices do you need to CONTINUE doing?
Which aspects of your work need to be maintained?
What needs continued investment to maintain the impact you want to see?
What aspects of your practice can you IMPROVE?
Which parts of your project have room for growth?
What changes can you make to increase the impact?
Which elements of your work need to be PAUSED to allow resources to shift elsewhere?
Which projects would benefit from a short developmental hiatus?
Which projects are a priority and would benefit from other elements being PAUSED?
Which aspects of this project would benefit from an increase in pace?
How might we increase the speed of development?
In the future what might be a block or challenge to the success of this?
What have we learned from the story of development so far?
If we returned to the beginning of this project what would we start with?
What can we learn from how this problem was handled in the past?
Which assumptions do we need to CHALLENGE?
What bias do we need to talk about and better understand?
What will you do to disrupt and challenge the status quo?
I made another thing.
I have developed this into a little one page PDF resource, if you would like a copy, just drop me a reply and let me know how you might use it.
Ideas and inspiration about Leadership, Learning and Innovation. Every Friday.
"nobody else shares such inspiring work on innovative education."
"I look forward to my Friday email as it is always thought-provoking."
"Not too long, not too short, just right!"
"exactly the nourishment I need on a weekly basis."
"I particularly enjoy the way Dialogic Learning readers are given insight into thinking processes in grabs large enough to be meaningful but small enough to chew on and digest."
