Managing Successful Universities
''Michael Shattock is the master craftsman of sturdy self-change. His liberating lessons will be useful not only in Britain but around the world.'' - Professor Burton R. Clark, University of California, Los Angeles. ''What do we mean by a successful university? How is such success measured? Are our criteria for success consistent with maintaining and enhancing diversity of mission? How can decline be avoided and failure redressed? And what forms of university management are most appropriate to stimulating success? Few people are better qualified by experience and by scholarship to ask and to answer such questions than Michael Shattock... this important new book strengthens the argument for seeing good management as a necessary condition for effective and worthwhile teaching, learning and research, and its neglect as a serious threat to core academic values.'' - Professor Sir William Taylor, Former Director, University of London Institute of Education. ''Michael Shattock is without doubt Britain's leading authority on the dangerously neglected subject of university management... For some his book will not make comfortable reading.''
