This book is primarily aimed at those who have, or will have, a role in leading departments or teams in higher education institutions. It examines the ways in which mainstream leadership thinking does - and does not - apply to departments and teams in HEIs and suggests that departmental leadership is critical to institutional well-being. A series of substantive chapters explores assessment, learning and teaching, research and scholarship, administration and continuing professional development, and the final chapter discusses the ways in which individuals learn how to lead. The book offers a way of looking at the practice of leading rather than presenting a selection of tips or tools for leadership, but is studded with fascinating views from departmental leaders and extensive practical advice.

"...sensible advise about a range of practical topics and the HoD who reads it will be better placed to facilitate informed decision making.

...the average HoD will actually be doing rather well to keep their head above water...what a shame that most of them will not find the time to read and reflect upon this valuable book, were they able to, maybe our university departments would be better led." - LTSN Reviews
