Tri-County Cradle to Career Collaborative is hiring a Director of Continuous Improvement.
The job description is posted here and below:
The Director-Continuous Improvement (DCI) reports to the TCCC’s CEO and has overall responsibility for the further development of the Tri-County Regional Improvement Process (TRIP!) and its deployment across the region. The facilitation of TCCC’s Networks, Consortia and Project Teams also falls within his/her responsibilities.
Tri-County Cradle to Career Collaborative is a non-profit, collective-impact site dedicated to the success of every child in education attainment in the tri-county region. Three years ago, TCCC adapted a process of improvement for use in collective-impact work that has proven effective in bounding and guiding collaborative work at the population level. It has become clear, however, that infusing tools found in Results-Based theory will assist in strengthening the process and in taking it to scale across the region.
A three-year grant funded by The Duke Endowment provides for the build-out of TRIP!, utilizing evidence-based tools found in Results Based Leadership, Accountability and Facilitation. Working with a group of consultants, the DCI will oversee the first phase of the work: to create a manual and training syllabus that integrates these tools into TRIP!
The next phase of the work involves hiring 1-2 full-time facilitators to become certified in the expanded version of TRIP! With this support, the DCI will then initiate a process in which 10 non-profits in the region are recruited to become certified in TRIP! The process with these non-profits will be on-going, with the DCI periodically conducting peer collaborations among participating non-profits. The DCI will also become certified as a ‘Train the Trainer’ and will ensure that all Networks, Consortia and Project teams have trained and compensated facilitators.
The Trident United Way is a close partner in this work, having deployed TRIP! across its grantees. The DCI will maintain a collaborative relationship with TUW during all phases of the work to assure alignment in the application and deployment of the process.
The DCI will be accountable to the CEO and the Board for ensuring that TCCC processes are properly bound, guided and supported by certified facilitators.
-BA or BS, with a graduate degree preferred
-Five years experience minimum as either a consultant, trainer or line manager in the deployment and application of continuous improvement tools consistent with the underlying principles of TRIP!

-Non-profit experience preferred
