How to Deliver Improved Outcomes
The author elaborates on his previous work, How to Run a Government (2016), to offers guidance for policymakers and education ministries seeking to implement education reform for improved student outcomes. It focuses on adopting a mindset of delivering results, which will be of value to governments and educators, and frames a practical approach to reform grounded in establishing clear objectives and pursuing them systematically, efficiently and in a timely way. Sir Michael draws on his wealth of experience during his time as chief adviser on delivery under former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair, and adviser on system reform to the chief minister of Punjab in Pakistan. In addition, he looks to previous cases of successful reforms and illustrates how these can serve as examples. Cases are given from a diverse range of countries including Canada, Finland, Jordan, Malaysia, Pakistan, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
