It is widely accepted that today’s technological world is moving in a much more speed than the past, which requires the skill of keeping up with the pace of change. This change and innovation is a must for all organizations. According to Shen (2008, p. 73), this change is trickier in the educational context, where "the nature of the knowledge, skills, and attitudes of those involved and the way that these are expressed in action" is of much significance. The need for innovation in education derives from the fact that they are, according to a study of the European :::::union::::: reported in Popescu and Crenicean (2012, p. 3982), "among the most important skills that employers seek." Therefore, the book under review in this paper is about a topic that needs constant attention.
