This edition of the Buckingham Journal is focussed on Leadership and Management. Whilst curating this edition I have been struck by the realisation that this edition could have been focussed on Change Management. All of the contributors to this edition of the Buckingham Journal are either reporting on or observing seismic changes in the way schools are organised, led and managed. Sometimes change is strategic and well-planned at other times change is chaotic and a response to a situation. I recall in the early 2000s whilst working in school senior leadership I said that I would vote for any party who promised to leave education alone for five years, that teachers would make any system however imperfect work. At the time we had revised OFSTED frameworks, SEAL, ECM, new vocational qualifications, Leadership Incentive Grant, new progress measures and Building Schools for the Future.
