Synopsis

There is a growing discrepancy between how principals are being taught to make decisions and how decisions are actually made on the job. Many of the most challenging problems are solved through intuition, not extensive analysis. The authors, with over 50 years of combined experience as principals and superintendents, provide educational leaders with a better understanding of how intuitive decision-making may be effectively assessed, used, and enhanced as a powerful cognitive tool for resolving complex administrative problems. Includes: * An in-depth examination of how intuition corresponds with rational/analytical approaches to complex problem solving and decision-making in schools. * A thorough investigation into the intuitive decision-making experiences of 90 California public school principals who participated in an empirical research study developed by the authors. * A comprehensive synthesis of ideas and suggestions about how school leaders can access and develop their intuitive decision-making skills.

For school administrators, professors, and trainers of educational administration, or anyone interested in the dynamics of intuitive decision-making in complex public or private organizations.
