The self-organisation of schools is in the centre of this article. The increasing autonomy of schools enhances their degrees of freedom and the complexity of their order structures. The question arises, whether schools should be supervised under a central control and a strict regulation by authorities such as ministries. The authors reject this – according to Hayek’s view - as a constructivist error and search for a synergetic solution. For this purpose the authors define a school as a “non-linear, dynamical system” and introduce intellectual capital reporting (IC reporting) as an adequate methodological tool. IC reporting can be understood as a decentralised and output-oriented approach to school management. Finally, a list of learning objectives will be formulated, which should be kept in mind in the context of educational leadership programmes.
