Leadership at a distance

Research in technologically-supported work

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

This volume offers insights from a noted group of scholars who discuss the complex phenomenon of leadership in distributed work settings - also known as leadership at a distance. Editor Suzanne Weisband addresses the ubiquitous roles leaders play, their scale of work, and the range of technologies available to them, while setting new directions in studying leadership at a distance. A unique perspective of empirical research unfolds, representing a variety of fields and methods to foster a better understanding of the role technology plays in leadership, and how leadership is shaped by the use of technology.

Leadership at a Distance begins with an overview of the challenges leaders face in the 21st Century, followed by a discussion of:

• Field studies and innovative ways of thinking about leadership in distributed work settings

• Experiments on the group dynamics and social processes involved in leading teams at a distance

• Research on leadership in large-scale distributed collaborations, as well as lessons learned about leadership at a distance and future research directions.

Managers, organizational behavior psychologists, human factors and industrial engineers, and sociologists will consider this book of interest and will appreciate its interdisciplinary scope.
