Leading and managing change in schools is a complex topic. In this timely book the authors take the reader through a journey of how to lead and manage multidimensional change in order to create engaged learners, teachers, leaders and managers. They provide a readable and straightforward account of a major, high-profile innovation in one school and draw from it key lessons for leaders and managers of change in schools.
Managing Complex Change in School synthesizes a wealth of literature and research on managing change, and shows how the emerging field of complexity theory can inform the effective management of multidimensional change.
Arising from an in-depth, mixed methods evaluation of the key school, this book is practice-focused and is an invaluable companion for practitioners handling positive change in schools.

Professor Morrison has produced an innovative and rigorous approach to multidimensional studies in leadership, technology and pedagogy and in this book demonstrates clearly how complexity theory can be applied to these using mixed methods research. This will be an essential book for students, researchers and scholars in the fields of leadership, technology, pedagogy, evaluation, research methods and educational theory. -- Stewart Martin, Head of Department, Centre for Educational Studies, University of Hull
The topic is timely and addressing an emerging view about change, leadership, and the reality of attempting to implement multiple innovations at the same time. It would be used in graduate programs in educational leadership, curriculum, ICT, and program evaluation. It also would make a good "book study" with school and district administrators. -- Gene E. Hall, Professor Urban Leadership, University of Nevada
