Southern Cross

Free up resources and improve learning outcomes through school process improvement.

The Southern Cross Program is full of useful and practical tools for schools, designed to improve organisational efficiency and effectiveness through process and performance management.

We know that ineffectual school processes can inhibit student learning. By streamlining processes, your school can free up precious financial and staff resources. This can lead to improved student and learning outcomes, and heightened engagement within your school and local community.

ISV offers the Southern Cross Program to schools through the American Productivity and Quality Center (APQC). It incorporates process performance work with an APQC facilitator.

Each school brings a team and a particular challenge or initiative to explore.  Southern Cross can help schools to:

  • define and clarify a significant process challenge or problem
  • align its vision with day-to-day operations to maximise resources and improve productivity
  • empower staff to instigate change
  • develop an action plan
  • smoothly implement solutions
  • further engage with local communities.

All schools which participate in the Southern Cross Program are supported through their implementation phase, with access to follow-up conversation and coaching from ISV and APQC staff.
