The project described in this paper is part of a cohort of projects funded to revolutionize engineering and computer science departments (National Science Foundation RED initiative). The focus of our work is to take a systems-level perspective regarding how change can be facilitated within an organization. Our efforts aim to empower faculty to be agents of change and to cultivate a culture that recognizes and rewards risk-taking in the classroom. We approach our work by attending to the larger ecosystem of people and organizations within which change happens. Our evidence-based methods are intended to foster revolutionary advances within our engineering program. We are in the third year of our five-year project and have recognized that part of the revolution entails how our team adapts internally and externally through the different stages of the project. From an internal perspective, we have been intentional in reflecting on team process, team dynamics, and team structure so that we modify and adapt as necessary to maximize performance. From an external perspective, we are intentional to recognize and be responsive to changes that happen in the larger ecosystem, i.e., our institution and professional community, within which we are situated. We are nearing completion of foundational aspects of the project and are transitioning during the pivotal year three to new focus areas and different phases of work. This paper provides a summary of our progress to date regarding meeting the project objectives, in addition to recent adjustments made to support our next steps. These adjustments are driven by our reflection of what, precisely, is our revolution, and how our project team is adapting to accelerate progress on the pathway to reach the revolution.
