Strategic Leadership

In public education, strategic leadership is an individual capacity and a characteristic of high-functioning organizations. Strategic leadership involves system thinking and outcome-oriented planning. In state education agencies, districts, and schools, strategic leadership is characterized by an intensive focus on improvement and setting of tangible outcomes, with an understanding that the improvement pathway is complicated and continually changing. Strategic leaders and organizations engaged in strategic leadership are able to access tremendous amounts of information and filter this information so that decisions are supported by all, strategies are aligned, and actions are meaningful.
