Attempts to conceptualize a framework for understanding and implementing self‐management in school from a multi‐level perspective. Proposes that there are three levels of self‐management in school; namely, the school level, the group level and the individual level. Each level of self‐management follows a self‐propelling and cyclic process comprising five stages. By following these self‐management cycles, the school, the groups and its individual staff members are sensitive to environmental changes and capable of self‐learning and development. In order to implement self‐management successfully, various conditions at the three levels are to be fulfilled. Also discusses the importance of school leadership and mission. It is hoped that this framework could provide a comprehensive view of self‐management in school and consequently contribute to the worldwide ongoing school management reforms and school development research.
