Data System Implementation: A Leader Navigates People Problems around Technology and Data Use
Cho, Vincent; Jimerson, Jo Beth; Wayman, Jeffrey C.
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v18 n2 p134-143 Jun 2015
Computer data systems have become a lynchpin to supporting school data use. However, successfully implementing such systems is no easy task. In this case, readers explore the ways in which "technology problems" and "people problems" can be intertwined. The case follows Dr. Molly Winters as she encounters social and organizational challenges relating to district vision, tensions around data use, and tensions involving technology implementation. Her exploration of these issues spans both the school and district levels. Her goal is to analyze and provide recommendations regarding how to support data system use and school improvement throughout her district.
