7 Steps in the creation of an Innovation Configuration map=

What is the purpose?
  • Create what a new program is/is not
  • Creates a vision of what it looks like
  • Makes the expectations concrete
  • Helps people understand new parts


Innovation Configuration

Step #1

Visualize and brainstorm the components of the new program or practice.

Step #2

Within each of the components identified in step 1, visualize and brainstorm the ideal behavior of key individuals--principals, teachers, students.

Step #3

Within each of the components identified in step 1, visualize and brainstorm any unacceptable behavior of key individuals--principals, teachers, students.

Step #4

Generate variations for each component, essentially filling in the gap between the ideal behavior and unacceptable behavior.

Step #5

Rewrite each variation, using an action verb to begin each sentence and describe behavior of the key individual, such as the teacher or principal.

Step #6

Using the tool on page 4, write the variations from left to right, with the most ideal variation on the far left and the most unacceptable variation on the far right.

Step #7

Using the tool on page 4, draw lines to show users the ideal behaviors, the acceptable behaviors, and the unacceptable behaviors.
