Fullan's first book on this subject was an instant and best-selling success. Now, in Change Forces, The Sequel, he extends and expands the use of chaos theory as a lens through which to view and comprehend change, and the forces which govern it. Educators have already widely embraced this approach, and adopted the idea that change is not so straightforward as we might hope. As Fullan worked on his ideas, relating them to school systems, higher education and research, the field of change forces also developed significantly. This volume covers the new aspects of this science of complexity and helps educators obtain insights for delving deeper into moral purpose and expanding into fresh dimensions of changing forces in the environment.
