There is growing research and literature about leadership and management in higher education. However, most of the literature available in the field currently focuses on individuals with formally designated middle management or more senior or '¨‹top'¨" leadership roles. There has been little consideration of the formal and informal leadership role of full professors. This group of individuals are key to the leadership of universities and they represent a group of individuals at the apex of their discipline or profession with considerable expertise across many elements of academic practice including research, teaching and service activities incorporating leadership and management roles. In this context, the role of professors as '¨‹intellectual leaders'¨" is under-theorised and higher education institutions make insufficient use of professors as an internal resource. This book provides a theoretical exploration of the meaning of intellectual leadership with particular reference to university professors and other senior academics. This will draw on new international research data (online survey and interviews) involving several hundred university professors in Europe, North America, Asia and Africa and will also provide a practical series of ideas and recommendations for defining the role of a university professor more clearly and leveraging their expertise more effectively for the benefit of institutions and human resource departments, in particular.
