Chapter II. Leadership in E-Business > Leadership Style in E-Business

Leadership Style in E-Business

As technology develops, e-business will become more prevalent, forcing organisations to change more rapidly than ever before. Therefore it is of interest to explore how this change is led and managed. There is little empirical evidence about managing or leading change in this new context and what there is, is of limited use because they measure using the past frameworks or notions of leadership. Because of this, Cope and Waddell (2001) adapted an Australian developed change management model and applied it to an e-business environment, specifically looking at the manufacturing sector.

The objective of this study was to bring together leadership and change management in an e-business environment, then to explore if a relationship between the scale of change and the style of change management leadership exists in the new environment. This was achieved by looking at four specific relationships that covered the continuum of the scale of change and the style of leadership.
