Change leaders at all levels of the university will need to grapple with both the content and the process of change. This book tackles the question of how universities can lead change from within.There is a solid change knowledge base available which amounts to figuring out how to stimulate and integrate strong moral purpose and equally strong partnerships and relationships inside and outside the institution--conviction and connection in equal measure. The authors draw on this considerable knowledge about the dynamics of change throughout the book.Table of ContentsPrefaceChapter One: Universities and the Challenges of the 21 st CenturyChapter Two: Failed StrategiesChapter Three: The New AgendaChapter Four: Making It Happen: Building Quality and CapacityChapter Five: Leadership Capacity for TurnaroundChapter Six: Learning LeadershipReferencesAcknowledgementsAbout the Authors
