Close but far away about leader competence and organizational capability to lead in a digital world
Research Project, 2022 – 2024

Purpose and goal
The purpose of this project is to study challenges and possibilities in leadership situated in a digitally based telework context to increase the knowledge on how such leadership may be developed and how it may facilitate an organisational ability for innovation and change. Based on the knowledge developed with the organisations in step 1, the project, in step 2, will be implemented through a qualitatively focused interactive case study design where telework leadership in three organizational contexts will be studied.

Expected results and effects
The project is expected to contribute to the development of new, theoretically informed knowledge at the intersection of leadership and digitalisation. Based on competence theory and how competence can enable organizational ability, the project thus contributes with knowledge of how individual leadership competence, in a digital work context, can enable organizational ability to better lead with the support of digital tools and working methods.
