Fragile Plateaus

Standards change. Teams change. Communities change. Accountability frameworks change.

The danger of these changes is they expose blindspots. And blindspots are the reasons behind plateaus.

A school can find something that “works” so to speak. It works given the specific milieu and factors of the campus at that point in time. It creates results to a certain point. It’s the short game. Usually, it creates false positives.

False positives belie fragility. Short-term results built on false positives will crumble in the face of change.

The topic of plateaus and how to break through them is discussed at length in today’s episode of the Mafost Mashup, Execution Gaps.
