Abstract 

Innovation and radical strategic change are closely related. They both introduce a high degree of uncertainty to an organisation. Recent research has identified that there are particular processes that are more effective at facilitating the management of such activities by enabling the uncertainties to be reduced. There are parallels in other sectors concerning the way innovation and change projects need to be set up and managed. This paper explores the particular characteristics of educational innovation projects and proposes a management model which accounts for the nature of growth and change for professional educators.

Key words: strategic change; innovation; educational change; project management; learning organisation; action research; action learning; accountability.
