A Hanover Research member district seeks to understand and refine best practices in district leadership strategic thinking, specifically amongst its Executive Cabinet. The cabinet is prioritizing moving from short-term problem solving to long-term success. The goal is to think strategically by focusing on decision-making that promotes lasting growth and innovation.
To support this effort, the member has partnered with Hanover to review secondary literature, with the specific goal of identifying strategies for district leadership strategic thinking. This research brief and discussion guide will review best practices and include prompts to guide conversations around this work. This research will be used by district leaders as they plan with the future in mind, and moreover, take those ideas and ensure they are translated into viable operating plans.
