Over the past few weeks I have been watching Undercover Boss on CBS with great interest. The concept of the show is that top CEOs of major corporations go "undercover" in their companies to gain a better understanding of the day-to-day operations and how they can improve their companies overall. I was skeptical at first at the thought of this concept. Would the CEOs really notice anything, own up to problems in their companies or make significant changes?
Not only did these CEOs complete their "undercover" tasks, but they all stepped up to the plate to address what they witnessed and experienced. All of them have made adjustments to the operations of the companies and most of them have added programs/ opportunities for employees to benefit from.
So this got me thinking......what about the idea of Undercover Education Administrator? I know, the title doesn't sound as smooth. But, the concept is an interesting idea. I wonder what administrators would see, or become aware of, that they wouldn't normally in their role.
Just a thought.....
