Strategic Consulting

A school's vision for learning is its vision for the future.

The Design Lab works with leadership teams to define and design for the learner experience.

The opportunities and challenges ahead in education are exciting and numerous. Now more than ever, we know we must expand our notion of when, where, and how learning happens. This begins with a deep commitment to defining and designing for the learner experience at our schools.

A clear, mission-aligned strategy for learning should be in place before institutional decisions or investments are made. The GOA Design Lab team works with school leadership teams on a five-step process: Envision, Focus, Strategize, Implement, and Communicate. Learn more about our process.

How We Work

Our strategy sessions are interactive and fun. We use a variety of prompts, tools, and visible thinking strategies to spark generative conversation and make sure your ideas are clearly articulated, organized, and documented. Our simple, usable templates and worksheets help align teams and simplify complicated ideas and processes.

Our process begins with a discovery call to learn more about your strategic goals. Together, we’ll develop a schedule, scope, and team for our work together. GOA will design and facilitate all sessions as well as provide you with a portfolio of artifacts from our sessions and a recommendations memo for next steps.
