Creating a Culture of Empowerment and Accountability at St. Martin de Porres High School (B) Harvard Case Solution & Analysis

Change is challenging for all but perhaps more difficult for other nonprofit organizations and school leaders. The role that culture plays in a mission-driven organization may often be an impediment to change. This case uses a distinctive education association, St. Martin dePorres School of the Cristo Rey Network, to illustrate the significance of culture in executing change. It demonstrates how leaders can articulate a vision and create a strategy to change an organization and proceed toward success. The case focuses on the leadership team of Assistant Principal Judy Seiberlich and Principal Mike Odiotti and they used cultural change as the key driver to school success.

That success was defined by improved academic performance, greater responsibility for teachers pupils and staff and stronger empowerment of constituents. It comprises a summary of the means by which the school's leadership team used data to drive decision making. This case may be used to exemplify change management, nonprofit leadership, culture change and is ideal for MBA students, executives in non-profit management or school leadership, mission-driven strategy or school leadership. It addresses critical issues that organizations face and provides strategies and tools that may be applied to mission-driven businesses.
