'Brent Davies tackles the much misunderstood and abused concept of strategy and gets great results. Linking strategy with sustainability, Leading the Strategically Focused School is full of wonderful conceptual tools and practical case vignettes. This book is both conceptual and practical, and takes all the excuses off the table. An inspiration and invitation to take action for the good of all' - Michael Fullan, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto. Strategic leadership is a critical component in the effective development of schools. Leaders need to consider the 'now' of school improvement and also how to build strategic capability within the school in order to ensure long-term success and sustainability. Drawing upon research conducted by the National College for School Leadership, the book examines how this can be done. The book includes chapters on: o establishing processes for building whole-school involvement. o strategic approaches to build capacity in your school. o building and sustaining strategic leadership throughout the school. o characteristics of strategically focused schools.
