The concept of an ALO(sm) - Accountable Learning Organization(sm) Georgia%20LEARNS%28SM%29%20ALO%20Introduction%20-%20With%20Notes.pptx emerged from conversations I had with Martin Pearson https://www.linkedin.com/in/martinpearson1/ as he was accelerating my awareness of how the business of healthcare was changing in the US. These changes were accelerated because of laws that would increase the accountability of healthcare providers for patient outcomes. This lead to the creation of ACO's - Accountable Care Organizations.
During my work with Annette Sibley https://www.linkedin.com/in/annette-sibley-798a9515/ and Gillian Gansler https://www.linkedin.com/in/gillian-gansler-540215/ of Quality Assist (whom I met via Debra Kline https://www.linkedin.com/in/bwisedeb/ ) I was introduced to Open Minds. This group provides a daily newsletter that includes well-researched articles related to the changes in the business of healthcare in the USA.

As a result of all the above - my awareness of what is happening in healthcare has accelerated my understanding of the future of learning. My hope is that your understanding will accelerate beyond mine by learning and sharing here - http://ifivealliances.ning.com/group/open-minds.
A leap forward on this work was inspired through conversations with Jeff Ross-Bain https://www.linkedin.com/in/jeff-ross-bain-23409b8/ as he helped me understand more about LEED https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leadership_in_Energy_and_Environmenta...
This helped me understand how an open framework might help unite and accelerate an industry as it innovated collaboratively.
Since then I have had conversations with many of you. The Accountable Learning Organization Adaptable Framework(sm) has emerged from these conversations.
On October 26th, 2017 we announced and "released" this framework - as a free, open and adaptable framework.
With thanks to the following people who have reviewed the model and contributed to enhancing it prior to its announcement and release:
For the last few months the following three people who are earning their PhD's in Instructional Design have been studying, discussing, influencing and applying the Accountable Learning Organization Adaptable Framework(sm).

Joining in this process was Imani Mance https://www.linkedin.com/in/imanimance/. She has agreed to work with them on making the announcement of the framework on October 26, 2017 from 4:00 to 5:00 PM.

I had breakfast with Damian Hanft on November 29th and the concept of "Performance Assurance" emerged from our conversation. This is an effective way to describe the purpose of the ALO.
I was asked today to list the "87" components of the ALO Framework. Here is my response:
The 87 is a “guess” – the components consist of questions, ideas and concepts:
This actually adds up to 111 (one more than LEED!)
This is our approach to the MVP - Minimal Viable Product.
Our Mindset is to Think Big, Start Small and Decide Fast
Below is the Tool from our Toolset that enables this
Our Skillset allows us to do each stage below so well - that it funds the next step.
The ALO is similar to the alignment process used by a physician.
And – they have the freedom to determine how they apply the process (the tools and sequence may change) and what methods exist or need to be created. In some cases they may refer us to a specialist.
The ALO Framework continues to guide the purpose of Georgia LEARNS.
After two and a half years of trying to explain the framework we made a decision early in 2020 to apply the framework. The first outcome of the effort to apply the ALO was the E5T5 (Each Five Teach Five) concept and its resulting community of learners (a sub-community within the Georgia LEARNS Community.) Since then E5T5 continues to adapt, create variations and become embraced by others.
While the inner structure of the ALO has remained consistent - it's name has changed from Accountable Learning Organization - Adaptable Framework to simply Adaptable Learning Organization (which carries the risk of being associated with adaptable learning.) The ALO is a mindset and the associated toolset. As we improve our skillset through application of the mindset and toolset - we expect both to adapt.
We are enjoying the ALO discovery and eagerly embrace your participation and guidance.
