About the Author:

Frank Crowther is an internationally respected scholar and researcher in educational manage­ment and leadership. He is professor and direc­tor of the Leadership Research Institute at the University of Southern Queensland, Australia. In 1997, he was awarded the Gold Medal of the Australian Council for Educational Administra­tion in recognition of his services to educational leadership.

Review:

"Our ability to build capacity in order to ensure student learning is paramount. This book takes us step-by-step through the process of building capacity, giving practical examples and offering simulations that any school leader can use to improve student learning." (David G. Hodgdon, Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction 2010-05-28)

“Crowther and his colleagues provide the most important volume to date about the critical place of “capacity-building’ in the role of sustaining school improvement. They have also crafted a masterful, and eminently useful, guide to reshape leadership in the service of sustained success.” (Joseph Murphy, Frank W. Mayburn Chair 2010-10-01)

"We yearn for sustainability, for without it, the future is bleak indeed. Frank Crowther and his associates have given us a uniquely integrated approach to sustainability. The ideas for meaningful work, questions for inquiry, case studies―in both educational and noneducational settings―and vivid simulations provide an accessible roadmap." (Linda Lambert, Ed.D., Author and Professor Emeritus 2010-10-01)

"Frank Crowther and his associates show us deeply and clearly how to build the foundation for sustainability. They take us on a marvelous journey that weaves together a powerful conceptual framework, concrete snapshots of schools using the ideas, and tools and activities for getting there yourself. Engagement, clarity, and impact are at the core of this terrific book." (Michael Fullan, Professor and Author 2010-10-01)

"A very detailed and informative book that will assist beginning and seasoned administrators in organizing and restructuring their schools to meet the needs of the 21st century." (Belinda J. Raines, Principal 2010-05-28)

"A fine survey on achieving long-term school improvement, from an author who makes a case for capacity building and parallel leadership as keys to sustainable improvement." (James A. Cox, Editor in Chief 2011-11-21)
