A Model of Scaling Technologically-Mediated Innovations: Leadership and the System
Scaling is often conceived as a process of multiplying a best practice. But practices are usually more complicated and contextual than it seems.
In this keynote presentation, Professor Hung will present on his study on the tensions and struggles schools in Singapore cope with scaling. He will explore the form that “diffusion” manifests itself in the schools.
Building on his findings, Professor Hung will illustrate how many of the lessons learned from the Singapore Future Schools’ experiences can be drawn to other sectors of interest. He will conclude with a non-linear model of scaling, and highlight his thoughts on issues of leadership in the context of the larger system – that is, find the fine balance between centralization and decentralization.
