Leadership and Management of Quality in Higher Education by Chenicheri Sid Nair

This book provides a range of case studies concerning the leadership and management of quality development in higher education. It captures the experiences of senior administrators and managers to the complexity of problems that quality development involves. The authors draw attention to the human-centred approach to quality, as they argue that in any activity there is a need to take account of human values and attitudes.
