Description - Managing Change in Education by Nigel D. Bennett
'This is an interestingly eclectic selection of material on the management of change in education' - Managing Schools Today
A key theme of this book is that change is not just about the creation of new policies and procedures to implement external mandates. It is also about the strategies by which individuals respond to the impact of structural and cultural change; about personal change as much as organizational change; about the place of values in framing organizational form and culture, as well as those which look at individual and group responses to the pressures which they feel.
This is a companion volume to Managing the Effective School edited by Margaret Preedy. It is the set book for The Open University course Managing Schools: Challenge and Response(E326)
