In the second half of our series for institutions ready to practice courage and innovation, and realize big change, we talk with Joretta Nelson and Emma Jones of higher ed consulting firm Credo. This episode will help presidents, vice presidents and provosts, faculty, and staff recognize the need to roust the courage within, let go of what has been, and innovate what can be.
Colleges and universities aren’t typically known for being nimble or change-embracing, but intense and rapid changes in technology, demographics, and culture are demanding that higher ed innovate and evolve faster and with greater vision than ever before. In this two-part series, experts from consulting firm Credo introduce us to their new book “Pivot: A Vision for the New University,” and discuss working with campus leaders to achieve and exceed challenging goals while fostering rapid change. In this episode, Pivot co-author Joanne Soliday shares solid examples of success, and talks about “disrupters-in-chief” and how to turn the concept of consensus on its head.
