1. Jara, Ricardo. It’s Who You Know: Examining the Intersection of Influence and Relationships in a System-Level Change Effort.

Degree: 2018, Harvard University

In this capstone, I examine the interplay of power, influence, and relationships in the context of a systemwide effort to improve Madison Metropolitan School District’s capacity to support its Opportunity Youth, a population of students put highly at risk of dropping out of the system. To some degree, my emphasis on meaningful relationship-building helped to align organizational resources, support, and public value. However, the uneven distribution of these connections, coupled with a quickly shifting environment driven in part by local and national events, complicated support-building efforts to create a dedicated districtwide office to directly support Opportunity Youth. I analyze the role of other contextual factors that influenced the degree of capacity, support, and public value I organized to move this work forward. Implications highlight the potential benefits of Opportunity Youth–focused efforts led by community-based organizations, population-specific central office teams, and intentional relationship-building engagement. The work discussed in the capstone is a potential case study for idealistic and emerging leaders who have yet to deeply explore the reality of enacting change at the system level.

2. Herrmann, Zachary. Partner Up: The Role of Collaboration in Education.

Degree: Doctor of Education Leadership (Ed.L.D.), 2017, Harvard University

Individuals and organizations collaborate when they are unable to achieve their goals on their own. Considering the complex and ambitious goals of many education organizations, the education sector would appear ripe for collaboration. This capstone explores the unique challenges and opportunities inherent in collaboration between education organizations by focusing on district-university partnerships. District-university partnerships must navigate significant challenges, including differences in organizational culture, ways of working, theories of action, and goals. But these differences must not be viewed solely as challenges to overcome; they are also opportunities to be leveraged. Indeed, differences are precisely what lead to unique capabilities and perspectives: essential elements for effective collaboration. District-university partnerships provide a complex context for leadership. Effective leaders must be able to cross organizational boundaries, work effectively in situations with little or ambiguous formal authority, create systems and structures where currently none exist, develop partnership goals and processes that can coexist with those of each partner organization, and lead a learning organization. To do so, leaders must draw upon expertise not only in education, but from other disciplines and processes as well, including negotiation, collaboration, and business. Advisors/Committee Members: Boudett, Kathryn P. (committee member), Jewell-Sherman, Deborah (committee member), Cheatham, Jennifer (committee member).
