Academic scholars have written many books guiding managers at different business/industry positions. I wondered that I was unable to find any noticeable book describing the roles of a department head, dean, vice presidents, etc.
Academic scholars always guide managers in different sectors to use academic (scientific) methods for managing an organization; then, why there is no academic advancement to classify the role of university managers/administrators?
The main resources, as I searched, are few scholarly journals devoted to higher education in general.
If you know any book/resource on this matter, feel free to share.
My question is: if someone is just appointed as a department chair or decided to implement changes to his management system, where he can find books/guides on this matter?
