1. Phalane, Margareth Mokgohlwe. Experience of secondary schools management teams on teamwork in Tshwane North District schools .

Degree: 2011, University of South Africa

Democracy in South Africa, among others, has brought a significant number of changes in the education system, including the concept of school management team in schools (SMT). In line with this, the objective of this study was to find out how SMTs experience teamwork in schools; and was conducted in the purposefully sampled six secondary schools in the Tshwane North District. This study was framed within the interpretive approach, and sought to unpack the experience of SMT members with regard to teamwork. An interpretive paradigm made it possible for me to gain an in-depth understanding of SMT member‟s experience of teamwork within their school contexts. I used interviews and questionnaires as research tools to gather data. This study has found that, although the concept of teamwork is well-received, there are significant obstacles to the implementation of teamwork as an alternative form of management. Advisors/Committee Members: Pitsoe, V. J (advisor).

2. Sejanamane, Carol Malekwa. The perceptions and experiences of school management teams (SMTs) on teamwork.

Degree: 2014, University of South Africa

The changes within the South African education system have turned-around the view that regards principals as “sole” people responsible for leadership and management of schools. The task of the school principal has undergone a radical change. Over the years the notion has been replaced by the view that sees management and leadership as prerogative of many, including stakeholders within and outside education. The move has become world-wide phenomenon compelled by the dual imperatives changing societal values and the rate of change. This study is aimed at investigating the perceptions and experiences of School Management Teams (SMTs) on teamwork as an alternative to school management. The investigation was framed within the mixed-method approach, and sought to unpack the experience of SMT members with regard to teamwork. An interpretive paradigm made it possible for me to gain an in-depth understanding of SMT members’ experience of teamwork within their school contexts. I used interviews and questionnaires as research tools to gather data. This study has found that, although the concept of teamwork is well-received, there are still significant obstacles to the implementation of teamwork as an alternative form of school management Advisors/Committee Members: Pitsoe, V.

Degree: 2016, University of South Africa

The study focused on the leadership strategies employed by secondary school management team (SMT) in managing teamwork in Tshwane North District schools. Apart from a literature review, the objective of this study was to explore leadership strategies employed by SMT in managing teamwork, and how it affects the overall school management and performance. The study was conducted in the purposefully sampled six secondary schools wherein 18 SMT members were interviewed and 100 questionnaires distributed to 10 randomly sampled schools from the population of 30 schools. The study adopted the mixed methods research and sought to unpack the leadership strategies SMT members employ to manage teamwork. Empirical findings elicited by this study are that the concept of leadership strategies is a positive development. The participants’ perception of leadership strategies is generally favourable and they welcome the development, though many argue that it is essentially nothing new. Advisors/Committee Members: Pitsoe, Victor (advisor).
