Considering the challenges in contemporary and historical correctional management and of the successful and unsuccessful solutions to those challenges, the following chapter presents emergent features of the interviewees’ responses taken as a group. By utilising the main interview structure of each interview reported on in the foregoing chapters, this final chapter draws these themes together and examines corrections leadership through a theoretical and practical lens.
