"...offers strategies that are action oriented and focused on capacity building for the future." (Journal of Educational Change, 8:287-289) Higher education policy makers, researchers, practitioners, and scholars can benefit greatly from this book. It can serve to inspire leadership for those who believe that teaching and learning is the key to continuous improvement in higher education. Furthermore, the book should appeal to constituents of higher education due to the emphasis placed on evidence-based inquiry, data-driven decision-making, and explicit guidelines for turnaround leadership. Turnaround Leadership for Higher Education is a must-read for all leaders who want universities to be exciting and vibrant learning places for students and faculty alike. ?Anthony H. Normore "In Turnaround Leadership Michael Fullan goes beyond a critique of contemporary practice to offer specific, comprehensive strategies to create schools that become continuously more effective by building the capacity and the confidence of the educators within them. This is a must read for anyone serious about meaningful school improvement." ?Richard Dufour, educational author and consultant "Michael Fullan moves with authority to identify the kind of leadership needed to turn around our schools. His turnaround solutions are not the product of armchair contemplation, but have emerged out of the sweat and tears of actual systemic reform efforts." ?Peter Hill, secretary general of the Hong Kong examinations and Assessment Authority "Michael Fullan's work on leadership is powerful not just because it is evidence-based but because it is actionable?" ?Sir Michael Barber, McKinsey and Company, London, England "Fullan goes far beyond the rhetoric of moral purpose to lay out in stark terms what he rightly calls the 'real reform agenda.'" ?David Hopkins, HSBC chair of international leadership, Institute of Education, University of London
