Idea into Action

A toolkit for change and innovation

Implementing and sustaining innovation in any organisation can be difficult, particularly in complex settings like schools.

Innovation is a transformation of practice. It requires nuance in its implementation and adjustments on the part of all those involved in the change effort.

In August 2022, Independent Schools Victoria released our Idea into Action toolkit – part of an ongoing research collaboration with Project Zero at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

The toolkit is a comprehensive resource to help schools achieve large-scale innovation or complex change. It provides a practical set of tools to work through, including:

  • ReVisioning – Evaluating and positioning an idea for change.
  • Edge Effect – Creating a synergistic edge between new ideas and established initiatives.
  • Four Key Quests – Guiding the change through themes of Vision, Leaders, Community and Institution.
