Term Definition
managerialism

the belief that as all organisations are basically similar their performance can be optimised by the application of generic management skills and theory.  Thus professional experience and skills in education would not be seen as necessary for a manager in an educational context. The term is often used pejoratively of any approach which is management-dominated often without due regard to educational theory and values or of a viewpoint which stresses the important of internal management processes and structures in an educational institution at the expense of awareness of wider societal pressures and contextual influences.
