Development as Leadership-led Change: A Report for the Global Leadership Initiative
World Bank Publications, Jun 21, 2010 - Business & Economics - 84 pages
'Development as Leadership-led Change' presents the findings of the Global Leadership Initiative Research Study, which examines leadership in the change processes of fourteen capacity development interventions in eight developing countries. The paper explores what it takes to make change happen in the context of development, and in particular, the role leadership plays in bringing about change. The analysis and findings conclude that leadership manifests itself in different ways in different contexts, depending on readiness, factors that shape change, and leadership opportunities. However, the key characteristics of plurality, functionality, problem orientation, and change space creation are likely to be common to all successful leadership-led change events.
