Let's Talk Effectuation with Sara Whiffen

Posted By Christine Pigsley, Sunday, February 08, 2015

We invite you to share in a conversation with Sara Whiffen, Effectuation expert and the Coleman Foundation Entrepreneurial Colleges in Action grantees on a question that many of us deal with on our campuses every day. 

Which metrics or measurements do you think best capture the mindset of effectuation -- and why?

Please comment on this posting with your thoughts, ideas, and questions.

Sara Whiffen provided several new bits of advice that will help move Kaskaskia College forward with the measurements & metrics topic-
1) Define what success should look like
2) Get stakeholders involved and define success together
3) Think about the story that you want to be able to tell
We are going to try doing these three exercises in March and depict what we want to look like at the end of the year. This will also be the next topic of our senior admin monthly meeting. It will be interesting to let everyone sketch out their view of success! Our team's goal for these top level meetings has been simply to make OUR meeting the one meeting that President and VPs MOST want to attend each month. So far, I think we are accomplishing that, and how cool is that when everyone's plates are so full with meetings and projects?
