The iAbacus Improvement ModelThose of you who know John’s work will realise the iAbacus improvement model emerged from proven education developments in the late 1900s and early 2000s. Unusually, if not uniquely, it combines the emotional intelligence required in effective self-evaluation, action research and coaching with the rigours of criterion referenced inspection and review. This makes the iAbacus both a distinctive professional development model and a powerful planning tool. John’s paper explains how this proven sequence builds an organisation’s capacity for success by fusing self-evaluation with collaboration to empower individuals, teams and the whole school.
