Erasmus’ book explored whether the academic achievement of students of disadvantaged rural schools in Ghana can be improved despite funding and resourcing challenges. This was investigated through four case studies of leadership in disadvantaged schools to identify leadership practices, skills and attitudes employed by successful principals to enhance student achievement. The study identified seven elements of effective leadership comprising strategies for improving academic standards in these schools. This study is the first to specifically focus on the role played by Ghanaian principals of disadvantaged rural schools in improving academic achievement. The findings will inform professional learning programs used to enhance principals’ leadership capabilities. This book not only affirmed the import of Western educational scholarship through its erudite literature review but ingeniously established its interconnectedness with specific African educational strategies such as school and local community partnerships for recruiting resources. Be careful when using untrained, non-remunerated volunteer tutors, nicknamed: 'helper teachers' to solve desperate rural under-staffing issues.7678 Руб.

Academic leadership development has now become a critical issue in higher education globally. Leaders with exceptional capabilities are needed to help higher education institutions meet extraordinary challenges in the changing times. There is also an urgent need for women academics to play increasingly important roles in terms of providing effective and high calibre leadership and management. A better understanding of women university presidents’ career experiences is of great value in meeting these challenges. The authors identify and explore the essence of leadership and management grounded in these women’s experiences and bridge the gap between China and Western countries. The themes are illustrated throughout by insightful narratives of women university presidents. The authors’ articulation through rich stories of women’s leadership experiences is both moving and telling. This is a contribution that promises to transform both the leading of universities and the preparation of those who will lead them. Out of these women’s career experiences is an intriguing exploration of leadership and management that holds the promise of initiating significant and positive changes.7678 Руб.
This book presents an argument in support of the Bush Doctrine-- the set of principles and theories that have guided American foreign policy since 2001 and radically altered the conduct of international relations. It argues that the structure of the Cold War system, forged during the presidency of Harry S. Truman in an era of bipolarity between the United States and the Soviet Union, needed to be replaced to reflect a unipolar world order. The transformational presidency of George W. Bush has sought to actively promote liberal ideals of democracy and freedom in countries which are found to be lacking them. It has also argued that so doing is in the American national interest. Beginning with Iraq, the Bush Administration has sought to remove regimes which threaten American interests, support terrorism, and deny their own people basic liberties. Despite the liberal tone of the democracy promotion agenda, the Bush Administration has encountered difficulties in achieving its goals in the Middle East and elsewhere. This book examines the record thus far and proposes novel ideas to ensure the continuation of the Bush Doctrine in American foreign policy after Bush has left office.4980 Руб.

"Ambidextrous leadership driving strategic innovation" is a Master's dissertation in Innovation Management. The work explores the necessary duality that organisations need to maintain in order to be able to drive innovation initiatives, as well as maintain the profitability of core business. Operational activities require fundamentally different skills, mind sets and frameworks in contrast to innovation efforts. Where core operations can be characterised by needing to maximise efficiency, minimising risks, ensuring scalability, predictability and short term profitability - innovation requires space for exploration, slack, failure, and long-term perspectives. This dissertation looks at the difficulties leaders have in juggling those two, radically different efforts.4850 Руб.
After 20 successful and rewarding years in a corporate environment my wife and I decided to follow our dreams and bought a Macadamia Farm in Southern Kwa-Zulu Natal. Understanding that the South African Macadamia industry was a relatively new industry, entirely different and new to anything either of us had ever endeavoured or been a part of; I decided to do an in depth research project as part of my MBA for the benefit of ourselves and hopefully for the benefit of the industry. I believe it important for growers and the macadamia nut industry as a whole to demonstrate strong leadership in order to ensure that both growers and the industry develop ahead of local and international markets in order to retain a competitive edge. I can only hope that I have provided some insight to the perceptions of growers and other role players in the macadamia nut industry, regarding the role of leadership and innovative behaviour to support growth and sustainability of both growers and the industry.4850 Руб.

Creativity, engagement, mindfulness and ethical social interactions are goals of excellence required in life, career and more specifically in learning and education. Being prone to distractions from various kinds such as technological, social, physical and psychological, students are more than ever being challenged maintaining high levels of engagement and dedication at educational institutions. Student engagement, a primary indicator of quality, has been given high importance by Universities in the World to improve student success rate, university ranking and competitiveness. Being required to support the fulfillment of their National goals, Universities have a primary responsibility to supply quality human resources for their nations. From their end, students are being expected to be highly engaged, effective, productive, ethical and innovative employers and citizens before and after they graduate. This requires that students be backed not only by academic skills, but also creativity, leadership, emotional and social skills to fulfill these goals which has been proven by this triangulated study.1957 Руб.
