roles; evidence based staff development; research on effective teams;

operations; 360 degree performance evaluations; educational environments,
programs, and experiences that produce creative and strong leaders and
managers; changing leadership needs

alignment of structures with strategies rather than buildings; use of
social networks (blogs, wikis, Facebook etc.) as management and
communication tools; creation and use of data repositories and shared
e-spaces in work environments; methods to share and use tacit knowledge

organizations; different or alternative budget and funding models being
