Most of the cases in which SSM has been used are characterized by less than optimal research conditions where other methodologies are not applicable. The field of education can be examined only by the experts who are familiar with the case in practice, hence the SSM, in this research environment, was used as the only effective method and the deciding factor whether research can be conducted. The research is based on the approaches of pragmatism, social constructivism and the Conception of a Good School (2015).

Representing interests of the organization, ensuring rational use of financial and human resources by assuming responsibility for decision-making, have been excluded as the main components of managerial competencies that assure coherent school activities process. The survey of comprehensive school principals' managerial competencies significance has stated that the most significant school principals' competencies, which highly influence cohesive education process, are self-assurance, conceptual thinking; abilities to form and change school culture, to ensure conducive conditions for pedagogical staff professional development, and to manage and administer school property, allocations.
