Leadership and strategic management are both issues of central importance in raising achievement in schools and colleges and thus are at the heart of the educational debate today.

This book is concerned with such major issues as: the nature of strategic management in education; the importance of vision, and mission; styles of leadership; models of educational management; and the purposes of strategic management, which here are equated with the effectiveness and improvement of the institution.

It will be invaluable for students of educational management, such as those following masters degrees. It is also directly relevant to teachers and lecturers and schools of all phases and in further education colleges

Review:

`The book would constitute a good starting-point for anyone wishing to understand contemporary developments in educational management′ - Educational Research

`This is one of very few texts to give recognition to the difficulties in large institutions and to give practical advice about the degree to which collegiality can be built into strategic planning. The authors provide an overview of all aspects of leadership within education, giving ample references within each section for more detailed study′ - Mentoring & Tutoring
