These factors might be international or national trends such as policies, market forces or globalisation, and all of these also impact locally. At local level you looked at context from the point of view of local community expectations and internal culture and subculture in organisations.
These are all important factors for leaders and aspiring leaders in the case studies, as they introduce educational changes in a specific context.
