Distributed Leadership explores how leadership practice takes shape in the interactions between leaders, followers in their situation. A distributed perspective on leadership provides a lens for generating insights into how leadership is practiced, helping practitioners think about and approach their work in new ways. James Spillane, the leading expert in "Distributed Leadership," shows how leadership happens in everyday practices in schools, through formal routines and informal interactions. He examines the distribution of leadership among administrators, specialists, and teachers in the school, and explains the ways in which leadership practice is stretched over leaders, followers, and aspects of the situation, including routines and tools of various sorts in the organization such as memos, scheduling procedures, and evaluation protocols. The book provides an overview of what it means to take a distributed perspective on leadership, an examination of various uses of the term, a summary of the most current research, illustrative examples, and helpful guidelines.
“We all know how important leadership is to school improvement. What we haven’t been able to understand, until this book, is how leadership practice ‘stretched across multiple people’ can actually accomplish this improvement.”-- SUSAN H. FUHRMAN, dean and George and Diane Weiss Professor of Education, University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education, and chair, Management Committee, Consortium for Policy Research in Education “Grounded in the work of real schools and their many leaders, this concise and cogent analysis gives practical meaning to Spillane’s oft-cited—yet rarely understood—theory of distributed leadership. It is an essential guide for all those intent on improving their schools.”-- SUSAN MOORE JOHNSON, Porzheimer Professor of Teaching and Learning, Harvard Graduate School of Education “The most important ‘street level’ look to date at a topic at the very center of effective leadership for twenty-first century schools—by the nation’s foremost expert on distributed leadership.”-- JOSEPH MURPHY, professor of education and associate dean, Department of Leadership, Policy, and Organization, Vanderbilt University
