Abstract

Over the past twenty years distributed leadership has framed theoretical, empirical, and development work in education. In this article, we take stock of some work using a distributed perspective. We first discuss our motivations for developing this perspective and highlight some lessons learned from work in this area. Second, we make suggestions regarding fruitful directions for future research and practice-based work using a distributed perspective. We hope that this article serves as a useful contribution to the ongoing research and development work on school leadership and management from a distributed perspective.
