- Publisher's Summary
- Universities in Europe are transforming into passively competing, more accountable organisations, catering for a growing mass market with a standard structure for awards characterising the Bologna protocols. Michael O'Mullane examines university leadership as a significant influence on the navigation of universities through emergent futures by exploring approaches to leadership, how leadership is formed, and its challenges. Through the use of interviews, this volume presents perceptions of these topics from a transect of leadership practitioners and those who support leadership in universities and university support organisations. The author feeds the growing interest in how universities operate, their efficiency and effectiveness, and in some cases, their survival, and provides a a substantial, credible and defensible approach for readers concluding with a set of seven research recommendations for further inquiry.
