Thinking. Planning. Action.
The Cambrian Group offers the only holistic, strategic system for education in the country. Our team of associates can work to create a strategic plan for your school district, train your administrators through regional workshops, and provide software solutions to provide benchmarks for your custom plan.
On-Site Facilitation of a District Strategic Plan
An experienced Cambrian Facilitator leads every aspect of the Strategic Planning process, over a period of 9 months, including: Initial Awareness Session(s) and communication throughout the district, Exploration of Strategic Thinking, First Planning Session, Preparation of Action Team Leaders, Development of Action Plans, Second Planning Session, Phasing and Resource Allocation.
The intent is the continuous creation of [a community-based, unique, indispensable, vital, holistic system of] learning and teaching worthy of your students. Facilitation includes training in the development of school/site plans in a strategic context, the replacement of traditional job descriptions with Mutual Commitments and Expectations. Principles of continuous creation are instilled in the system.

The entire Strategic Plan can be managed by way of web-based software solution designed specifically for the Cambrian process and discipline.
The software will allow you to track progress on strategic objectives and action plans both graphically and in text format. It will track the annual work plan for staff assigned responsibility for implementation to ensure accountability throughout the organization.
The software includes password protected access within a range from “total access to view and change information” to a “view only” capability. The level of access is assigned by the software administrator within the district. Changes can be easily accomplished as a result of Plan Updates while the original information is archived to maintain a
historical perspective while allowing for the dynamic nature of a truly Strategic organization.
