Strategic Innovation in HE: The Roles of Academic Middle Managers
Kallenberg, Ton
Tertiary Education and Management, v13 n1 p19-33 Mar 2007
This article explains the development of, and presents a theoretical framework for, harnessing the roles of the academic middle manager in strategic innovation in Dutch higher education, thereby increasing higher education's ability to learn, innovate and develop a competitive advantage. The framework is developed from theoretical models of role interactions in an educational context and in business organizations. It is also based on an empirical pilot study of the role of the academic middle manager and reviews of other relevant literature. The aim of this article will be to explore and discuss ways of analyzing the way in which academic middle managers influence strategic innovations in universities. (Contains 4 figures, 1 table and 2 endnotes.)
