The contributors to this book are all leaders in their field – senior executives who have successfully led pan-university initiatives. Providing examples of bold initiatives and an analysis of their implementation, this book helps the reader reflect on how they might wish to proceed, authentically, in leading and supporting wide-scale change in the future. Each chapter highlights the power of the narrative of change.
In particular, this second edition demonstrates a change in considering global factors; it:
- Uses a case study approach to examine global higher education institutions
- Reflects the huge change in the global higher education landscape over the past 10 years
- Reflects on initiatives from the first edition in terms of how they were scaled up and draws on the advantages and disadvantages of each
- Includes a conclusive ‘Where to Next' section that ensures responsiveness and agility to the rapidly changing landscape and flags up a new paradigm for leadership: E4 leadership (engaging, energised, empowering and engaged).
