Podcast Highlights

  • Innovation in higher education involves starting with the end in mind, i.e., identifying the end point and ending date, and then allowing people to innovate with a focus on bringing the desired outcome into being.
  • This approach requires changing the definition of failure so that it becomes a learning opportunity as opposed to a terrible outcome that people are penalized for.
  • Creating this type of innovative culture requires letting go of 20th century processes that have become antiquated, such as consensus and seniority.
