Leading in a Management Paradigm: A Survey of Perceptions within a Faculty of Education
McGrath, Jim
Management in Education, v18 n4 p17-22 2004
Robertson laments the fact that the model of management and leadership that has emerged in tertiary level institutions, particularly further education (FE) colleges and statutory universities has sought to imitate that employed in the commercial sector. He argues that insufficient attention has been given to the problems that have arisen from the transfer of general management theory to the specific conditions that pertain in tertiary level institutions. He also notes that much of the research that has been undertaken on leadership in universities has been conducted in institutions where the effect of managerialism has been minimal and suggests that colleagues in the new universities may have been slow in "committing their critiques to the public domain (for reasons of ) professional security." In this article, the author explores how managers and staff perceive the exercise of management and leadership within a faculty of education situated within a statutory university.
