Abstract
In this study, the researchers examined the conditions under which a school can create and enact effective shared vision. A method of triangulation was used to find schools that identified as having strong shared vision, and that were open to discussing their conditions. Two focus groups were interviewed, and commonalities in underlying conditions were identified through keyword searches and a thematic analysis. Both schools revealed common themes that were categorized as Transformational Leadership, Distributed Leadership, Collaboration and Values. The researchers also noted the interplay between formal and informal leadership rather than a top-down or bottom up approach to creating and enacting vision. The researchers concluded that recreating the ideal conditions does not ensure effective vision, it simply sets the scene for success if pursued.
