报告主题：Balancing Person-Centric and Team-Centric Leadership in Projects
报告人：Ralf Muller 教授 挪威BI商学院
报告简介：Leadership has been explored for years, and leadership studies tend to be based on either the traditional perspective that assumes a person-centered, or vertical leadership, that “stems from an appointed or formal leader of a team,” or a team-centered, horizontal leadership perspective that views leadership as “a group process in which leadership is distributed among, and stems from, team members” (Pearce & Sims, 2002, p. 172). Few studies have explored the combination of both leadership approaches in projects (Müller, Vaagaasar, Nikolova, Sankaran, & Drouin, 2015) or the interaction between vertical and shared leadership (Hsu, Li, & Sun, 2017). The present research does this by introducing the concept of balanced leadership to the world of project management research. It describes a form of leadership characterized by dynamic transition of leadership authority between project managers as vertical leaders and team member(s) as temporary horizontal leaders. Consequently, the study extends current research work on leadership by broadening the scope from personcentric to person-and-team-centric leadership. This new understanding of leadership allows project managers to leverage benefits stemming from having the best possible person leading the project at any point in time during the life of the project.
