Achieving Big Goals in Small Steps
SUNY Adirondack implemented Franklin Covey's 4DX (4 Disciplines of Execution) in late 2017 with the goal of streamlining and clarifying how each and every staff and faculty member can create and achieve aligned goals that support the College's strategic plan and big WIGs (Wildly Important Goals). After several years of using the 4DX treatment, and participation by faculty and staff alike, learn SUNY Adirondack implemented 4DX to improve enrollment in non-credit programming, increase retention in Math courses and move the needle on Wildy Important Goals like fall to spring retention. Jane Hix from Franklin Covey will provide an overview of the 4DX system and show examples of how other colleges and universities are using it across the country.

Mapping The Future of Credentials- Panel Discussion
Colleges, job training programs, and employers offer all kinds of credentials—from degrees to certifications to licenses—for learning valuable knowledge and skills. But with nearly 1,000,000 unique credentials in the U.S., it’s easy for people to get lost and lose out on opportunities. Many potential learners are confused trying to navigate this complex landscape to identify which credentials lead to desired outcomes, employers are unable to understand what skills workers actually bring to a job, and educators are rushing to keep up with changing requirements in the workplace.
In New York State, the Workforce Development Institute (WDI) and NYATEP have partnered with the national leader in credential data transparency, Credential Engine, to end the confusion and frustration by mapping out the credential landscape and making it accessible. .Colleges, companies, government agencies, and others are sharing detailed information about their programs, and describing the knowledge and skills they confer in clear and consistent language. Together, we’re building a linked open data network that everyone can access for timely and trusted information about credentials.
This panel will highlight how New York education institutions can utilize Credential Engine’s robust national infrastructure - which includes a common language and an open-source registry - through the Future Skills Exchange platform, developed by WDI. NYATEP brings their deep network of workforce, educational and government partners to support adoption of FSX as New York’s gateway to transparent, meaningful credentials
