Bonus Article - Executive Memo
As a bonus with the Fall issue, we are making an additional article, How to Lead a Learning Revolution, available on the CSAE web site.

When some projects seem overwhelming, it’s time to start using checklists. To achieve the results, the adage, “when eating an elephant --- take one bite at a time,” promotes breaking big jobs into small tasks. Checklists detail the best ways to accomplish projects. Checklists promote excellence. A checklist facilitates a team approach to working toward desired outcomes. Bob Harris, CAE, discusses the benefits and techniques of using checklists.
