Strategic Management of Human Capital in Education offers a comprehensive and strategic approach to address what has become labeled as "talent and human capital." Grounded in extensive research and examples of leading edge districts, this book shows how the entire human resource system in schools—from recruitment, to selection/placement, induction, professional development, performance management and evaluation, compensation, and career progression—can be reformed and restructured to boost teacher and principal effectiveness in ways that dramatically improve instructional practice and student learning. Strategic Management of Human Capital in Education guides educators towards putting more effective teachers, teacher leaders, and principals in the country’s schools—especially in poverty-impacted urban and rural communities—equipping those teacher and principals with instructional and leadership expertise, and rewarding and retaining those who are successful in attaining these objectives. Drawing from cases, experiences, and deliberations from a national task force, this book outlines a comprehensive framework for how to transform current human resource management practices into authentic, strategic talent management systems in order to improve student achievement.

Teaching strategic management classes can be a very difficult challenge for professors. In most business schools, strategic management is a "capstone" course that requires students to draw on insights from various functional courses they have completed (such as marketing, finance, and accounting) to understand how top executives make the strategic decisions that drive whether organizations succeed or fail.

In the dynamic environment of the 1990s, a new emphasis is emerging in strategic management. There is a realization that certain key processes are directly linked to competitiveness and that these processes are an essential part of strategy. Organizational capabilities are now being seen as at least as important as market positions in the development of strategy and the building of enduring competitive advantage. This book explores these key processes (innovation, learning, structuring, leading and renewing) and their links with competitiveness. Leavy takes a harder look at the so-called softer variables in strategy, from the perspective of the management process analyst but with economic theory in support. The approach is thematic, combining a strong grounding in practical questions, with a range of theoretical perspectives. The book is presented as a thematic companion to a case-based approach to teaching strategic management and should be or interest to educators working at senior undergraduate, MBA and executive development levels.
