    Author Details

    Peter Gronn is a member of the Faculty of Education, Monash University, Australia. He has researched, taught and published extensively on aspects of school, educational and organisational leadership. His teaching and research interests include leadership, administration and management generally, and leadership and management in a variety of educational settings (especially schools), school reform and restructuring; history of schooling and education, organisation theory, organisational behaviour, and biographical and naturalistic research methods.


    This book would not have become a reality without the encouragement and support of my family, in particular my wife, Barbara. As always, my greatest debt is to her, for which I extend to her many thanks. I am also grateful to the numerous research students and colleagues who have stimulated my thinking. I also wish to thank Dr Felicity Rawlings for her helpful comments on parts of the manuscript.
