Assessing Readiness to Lead Strategic Change: A Guide for Public System Boards

By James H. Page and Barbara Brittingham

Systems are the future of public higher education, as only systems have the scope and scale to meet the challenges now facing public higher education comprehensively and successfully. But important changes are needed to make that happen. The changes required to realize this new approach are formidable and require system boards that are ready to lead change on an unprecedented scale.

Assessing Readiness to Lead Strategic Change helps public system boards assess and improve their readiness to lead this change. This publication is a tool that provides an overview of the myriad kinds of public system boards active across the American higher education landscape, presents a process for identifying board strengths and weaknesses central to its ability to lead change, and shows how to develop action plans to address the highest priority gaps.
