In this book, Robin Brooke-Smith explores the dynamics of schools as complex organisations. He presents a radical departure from established school improvement and effectiveness orthodoxies, offering a refreshing new approach to managing change and enhancing collective learning. Based on the author's own experience of managing and leading schools, this book explores such questions as: * How can schools learn as a generative process? * How can schools become adaptive and co-evolve with their internal and external environments? * How can education leaders 'navigate' their institutions out of the comfort zone and into the creative state? The book concludes with a series of practical lessons for leading schools in complex conditions and will be of great value to reflective, action-orientated heads, principals and deputies, as well as academics and researchers in education management
