"School systems that have successfully ignited reforms and sustained their momentum have all relied on at least one of three events to get them started: they have either taken advantage of a political or economic crisis or commissioned a high-profile report critical of the system's performance, or have  appointed a new, energetic or strategic leader. The role of new leadership is a common and particularly important pattern in igniting school system reforms, occurring in all of the improving systems we have studied. The evidence suggests that leaders that are successful in directing  system's improvement journey are characterised by taking advantage of the opportunity afforded by their being new to the role, in following a common 'playbooks' of practices, and in their longevity, having a much lengthier tenure than is the norm."
