To manage innovations effectively implies elements of planning, control, direction and order. Management has been analysed as involving the activities of planning, regulating, commanding, coordinating, controlling and evaluating (Urwick, 1963). The alternative to effective management of innovation is likely to result in a waste of time, money and effort and the possibility of a poorer quality of education because the desired improvement does not become a reality. Clearly, at a time of severe financial restrictions, when the most efficient use of human and material resources is essential, and at a time of increased concern about the quality of education, it becomes particularly important that those wishing to introduce educational innovations should do so as effectively as possible.
