Overview

The role of school principals and their executive staff has changed rapidly and radically over the last decade. They are now required to be, not only leading educators, but also effective business persons. The reality is, however, that most school leaders have little if any formal training for these business roles and very limited personal experience in managing these matters. This book assists school leaders in developing the understanding, knowledge, and skill of business processes that they need to perform this 'new' role effectively. The book does not aim to convert school leaders into accountants or entrepreneurs or marketing specialists. What it provides are the key principles and tactics of business operations that school leaders need if they are to effectively manage both the educational and business imperatives of their schools. In a sense, it is intended that this book should become the 'business bible' for school leaders - the single reliable resource they can turn to on a daily basis to assist them in addressing business issues.
