In the study, descriptive research model is used and universe is consisted from principals who participated in "Acquiring Formation Course Management II", organized by Malatya Provincial Directorate of National Education. Sample is formed from 233 volunteer principals, who answered the data collection tool properly and completely. As the data collection tool, "Innovation Management Scale for Schools" developed by Bülbül (2012a) is used. In order to determine principal’s perceptions about their competency level of innovation management, descriptive statistical calculations on the dataset are conducted. The lowest and the highest scores, standard deviation scores and arithmetic means are calculated. In addition, to determine principals' perceptions of their competence level of innovation management and its relationship with personal variables, t-test and one-way variance analysis (ANOVA) are performed through the data obtained. If ANOVA test results with significant differences, the multiple comparison tests are used to determine from which group or groups the difference is originated. In case of equal distribution of the group variances, Scheffe test is used for the multiple comparisons of average scores. According to results, principals’ perceptions of innovation management as a whole correspond to “strongly agree” and for dimensions, "totally agree" level for "Organizational Culture and Structure" and "Project Management” dimensions and” strongly agree” for "Input Management” and "Innovation Strategy" dimensions.
