Strategic Leadership Reconsidered
Davies, Brent; Davies, Barbara J.
Leadership and Policy in Schools, v4 n3 p241-260 Sep 2005
This paper will address the challenge of how strategic leadership can be defined and articulated to provide a framework for developing a strategically focused school drawing on a NCSL research project. The paper is structured into three main parts. Part one outlines the elements that comprise a strategically focused school, develops an understanding of strategy, and the concepts associated with strategic leadership. Part two explains the qualitative research methodology used and reports the main findings from the research in terms of (i) what strategic leaders do, and (ii) what characteristics strategic leaders possess. Finally, the paper proposes a new model of strategic leadership to analyze practice and to assist in leadership development. (Contains 1 table and 3 figures.)
