In this project the main focus is conducted interview to educational experts. This interview is base on Delphi technique. This technique is used to attain experts' consensus on elements which should be included in teaching leadership in schools. Delbecq, Van de Ven, and Gustafson (1975) cited in Wiersma and Jurs (2005) defined Delphi technique as a method for systematic solicitation and collection of judgments on a particular topic through set of carefully designed sequential questionnaires interspersed with summarized information and feedback of opinions derived from earlier response

The process of Delphi technique will be conducted is THREE rounds. The first round will be interviewed panel experts. The experts involves in this study will be mixed form different area in education; principal, educational policy makers and experience teachers. The interview could be open ended questions to allow the expertise to talk their opinions.

The second round focuses on attaining consensus form experts. The panel experts will be given the refined list of item generated in round one and they will be asked to rate all the round one item based on likert scale to item formed in phase one ( needs analysis). Responses will be analyzed for their median and inter-quartile range.

In the final round (third), each experts will receive the summarized and synthesized response from round two and they will be able to observe the rated items. Each panel member should be able to understand their position for each item compared to that of the panel as a whole. This is the final round; therefore the content of the questionnaires should set the stage for final rating and ranking. Experts will decide and place their final responses for each of the item. Any panel member whose final responses remain outside the range of consensus should justify his or her position in this round.
