    This edited volume sets out the current issues that face educational administrative processes and resources across the globe, and provides implication-lead responses for how best to tackle new challenges that arise.

    Featuring contributions and perspectives from the UAE, Nigeria, Malaysia, Indonesia, Portugal, Spain, Iran and the US, this diverse and truly international volume discusses the management of resources, tasks and communication key to the smooth running of educational institutions. Divided into four distinct parts, chapters examine educational administration from theoretical, conceptual, and empirical angles, focusing on theories, administrative procedures, decision support systems and management techniques in educational administration, as well as reward management and digital leadership. The book bridges the gap in educational administration by showcasing new trends across many countries and examining the role of theory in the field using examples of classical and contemporary approaches, systems theory, leadership theory, and theories of change and innovation.

    Ultimately presenting a problem-solving approach to the current educational administrative situation globally, this volume will be of interest to researchers, scholars, and faculty members involved with education administration research, educational administration theory and leadership. Practitioners working on educational process improvement and organisational studies will also benefit from the volume.
