The course begins with an analysis of the challenges created for educational organisations by the emergence of post-corporate influences. Possible responses to these influences are explored and assessed. The role of leadership in generating constructive organisational responses to post-corporate challenges is analysed. Four leadership approaches are emphasised: transformational leadership; strategic leadership, educative leadership and organisation-wide leadership. Students are facilitated to engage with others in understanding the essence of the challenges in their workplaces and, using authentic data, develop a contextually defensible response to an identified challenge.
