* Why do crises arise in Further and Higher Education institutions?
* How can these crises be overcome?
* What lessons can be learnt?
There have been several high profile crises in higher education during the last two decades. "Managing Crisis" draws together a number of senior academic managers to prepare, probably for the first time ever, a series of detailed institutional case-studies. These case-studies identify the nature of the crisis, describe the action taken to resolve it, and consider the lasting consequences. An important chapter gives the informed perspectives of the funding council on higher education crises, and in the final chapter the inimitable Peter Scott draws a series of significant conclusions.
"Managing Crisis" is the first book to examine crises in higher education in detail and to identify key points on how to overcome or avoid them. Required reading for managers working within UK Higher Education Policy.
