Abstract [en]

It is widely recognised that digitalisation has a significant impact on the organisational environment, triggering challenges on all levels of organisations irrespective of the industry. Despite the fact that digitalisation also brings forth opportunities, ultimately, companies are required to transform their businesses to stay competitive. Although leadership plays a crucial role in this digital transformation process, there is only little research on the link between leadership theory and digitalisation as well as a lack of understanding of what effective leaders in the digital age should encompass. Hence, the purpose of this paper is to add to the discussion of effective leadership in the digital age by investigating employees’ perception of leadership. Therefore, we conduct a qualitative study with twelve semi-structured interviews. Following an abductive research approach, we interpret the empirical findings with the prior established theoretical framework and further literature to fulfil the purpose of research. The study reveals that effective leadership in digitalisation as perceived by employees consists of an interplay between seven leadership skills and respective leadership behaviours that are also partly reflected in specific leadership styles.
