During my first piece of writing, I contextualised the growing leadership crisis in schools. This position paper argued for the research question; ‘The growing school leadership crisis in Queensland schools: Is talent management a solution?’. In my second paper, I have taken a focus on introducing the literature and developing my definitions through a mini-literature review. Having this paper critiqued by an academic operating in the field of business was daunting, however it highlighted that the key principles in the paper were relevant and held valid position in the field of education. Now onto paper three…research methodology.
