Abstract

School‐based management programmes have been launched in various regions of the world to enhance education quality in schools. Presents a multilevel self‐management framework necessary for effective implementation of school‐based management. Proposes strategies for minimizing restraining forces and developing plans for effective multilevel self‐management in schools. Suggests three stages of implementation: unfreezing stage, changing stage and reinforcing stage. The time frame is critical for implementing the three levels of self‐management and, therefore, its management is discussed. Proposes seven types of skill required to work more effectively through the above stages, reduce resistance and gain support from school members.
