It is not to be implied, therefore, that all findings necessarily apply to all schools. Whilst for the purposes of analysis, findings have been separated into the structural, human resource, political and symbolic frames, it is acknowledged that these four aspects are inextricably interrelated, and are simultaneously interwoven in practice.
In this book, the notion of collaborative leadership is extended into structural, human resource and political domains, in addition to symbolic perspectives, providing a fuller picture and a more comprehensive base for interpretation of the leadership milieu. As with collaborative leadership, this extended view has direct implications for the notion of a collaborative culture of a school, for instead of viewing culture as purely symbolic in its roots, it can be seen as inclusive of structural, human resource and political dimensions.
