1. Deuser, Michael. Strategic Recalibration for the Pathways to Prosperity Initiative: Transforming an Intermediary to Transform Cross-Sectoral Ecosystems.

Degree: 2018, Harvard University

I undertook my doctoral residency for Harvard’s Ed.L.D. program with Pathways Prosperity (PtoP), a five-year-old joint initiative with the Harvard Graduate School of Education that is housed within Jobs for the Future (JFF), a 35-year-old national nonprofit in the education-to-careers space. PtoP operates as an intermediary organization and technical assistance provider whose core business is helping states, regions, and other actors conceive, create, and scale education-to-career pathways. Conceptually speaking, education-to-career pathways are vertically articulated courses of study that seamlessly connect a young person’s experience from secondary to postsecondary to career. My main project was to lead a strategic planning effort to help PtoP identify and pursue opportunities to enhance and sustain its impact. In the account that follows, I begin by outlining my initial approach to this leadership challenge, including the content and process research (including adaptive leadership, teaming, and improvement science) that informed the theory of action underlying my leadership strategy. I then analyze both successes and failures, highlighting single- and double-loop learnings to enhance my leadership and inform PtoP’s strategic planning efforts. I consider what it might take for PtoP to generate short-term wins and sustain longer-term gains based on those efforts. I conclude by reflecting on the structural need for and critical functions of intermediary organizations within cross-sectoral ecosystems.

2. Johnson, Heather K. Doing Together What We Cannot Do Alone: Designing a Network to Build a Field.

Degree: Doctor of Education Leadership (Ed.L.D.), 2019, Harvard University

The Pathways to Prosperity (PtoP) Network at JFF has a bold vision: to reimagine how young people are prepared for the future of work in the United States. Launched in 2012, the PtoP Network is leading a national effort to improve education, workforce, and economic outcomes by building career pathways systems that prepare all young people for economically sustainable futures. This capstone examines my work to design and implement a strategy to engage high-level leaders (“the leads”) from different sectors and roles across the PtoP Network in intentional and deliberate activities to increase their impact, build their affinity for and connection to the Network, and advance the career pathways field. I examine design considerations for leaders of networks and elevate tensions inherent in the complex work of cross-sector collaboration. My analysis focuses on themes of delivering value and navigating uncertainty in the network design process, with implications for my leadership in the midst of ambiguity, for the future of the PtoP Network, and for collaboration across the education sector. Overall, the findings offer insights into the promise of networks to support field-building through careful design.
