From the Paper:

"The articulation of a vision means explicating it in practical terms via strategic planning. In addition, such strategic planning is only effective once all teachers agree upon the strategies to be used. This means that each individual's belief system needs to be involved in the strategic planning process. Fundamentally, each individual is therefore to be involved in the process that determines the way in which the vision is to be achieved. Effective leadership is crucial in achieving this."
