 *In addition to the keynote sessions, attendees will be able to select from four breakout session tracks. Please note that attendees are not required to follow a specific track exclusively; in fact, we encourage you to explore the different tracks as much as possible.

Track 1: The Science of Change: Explore the discipline of change through its history, methodology, and tools of the trade. These sessions will give attendees the nuts and bolts of change mechanics in order to better implement reform.

Track 2: Creating a Culture of Improvement: Lasting change requires leaders who believe in continuous improvement, demonstrate commitment to improving outcomes, and fearlessness in the face of failure. Their leadership must inspire a culture change within the organization and push the boundaries of possibilities, remolding their institution’s core values and practices. Presenters in this track will share their stories and lessons learned of leading large-scale change.

Track 3: Implementing Large-Scale Change: Bridging theory and practice, initiatives across the country are applying improvement science processes to complex issues, such as education, healthcare, and housing. These innovative models show what can be accomplished when institutions step out of their silos and begin working collaboratively towards large-scale change.
