3-2-1 Strategy for Continuous Improvement

Here’s an instructional leadership strategy that will simplify your school’s system for continuous improvement:

3. What are 3 areas your school will focus on improving this year?

2. What are your 2 key performance indicators (KPI)?

1. One area of instructional improvement for each teacher, each semester.

The key in this strategy is a collaborative culture where teams conduct the collective inquiry in the 3-2-1 process. Then for number 1, each teacher conducts split testing (A/B testing) to make improvements in the one area that is aligned with numbers 2 and 3.

It’s a collective commitment to continuous improvement. No one is off the hook. The entire school moves forward and moves with action for one purpose – impact on learning!

The 3-2-1 strategy is a simple strategy that works extremely well when your school uses OKRs to set goals and measure key results.
