APQC Education helps education leaders capture, scale and sustain transformation to improve student outcomes. We help educators redesign outdated or inefficient processes and break down functional silos which saves time, saves money and empowers people.
This work occurs through the implementation of Process and Performance Management methodologies and the identification of best practices.

If you are like most Education leaders you have a Strategic Plan for your organization that outlines Values, Vision and Mission.
It has been our experience that most school districts do not have all of these components in place to fully take their Strategic Plan to action. In response to this need we have created a new offering called “Strategy to Action” which gives you and your leadership team a Strategy to Action Roadmap specifically for school districts. This service is steeped in our Process and Performance Methodology and has already been delivered to over thirty school districts with great success!
To learn more about this new service offering, please join us for a free webinar at one of these times:
Tuesday, April 19th, 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm, central time
Thursday, April 21th, 11:00 am – 12 noon, central time
New and Improved! The PCF® was originally created to identify key processes in businesses and was then customized for the needs of K-12. The common taxonomy allows APQC and educational organizations to identify and compare processes, set and compare metrics and establish best practices. This latest version incorporates changes and updates from our North Star Community.
We are very thankful for all the cooperation and insights to assist in creating this latest version.
