A distributed perspective offers a new and important theoretical lens through which leadership practice in schools can be reconfigured and re-conceptualized.

While the research suggests that distributed forms of leadership can assist capacity-building within schools, further work is needed to investigate the nature of the relationship between distributed leadership and improved school/student outcomes.
