SECA Band 10 - The Notion of Change in Leadership Cultures
The initiation, planning and implementation of change processes are increasingly looked upon as central leadership responsibilities in organisations pursuing economic aims. Whilst system characteristics like order, consistency and security are mostly connected to the term «management », conceptions of change, movement and designing are associated with «leadership». Thereby it often remains unclear, what leadership in connection to organisational change or change in the eyes of the leading and the led actually means. This is the topic that Søren Bjønness is approaching in his research. He explores the meaning of «change» in the individual and collective understandings of leadership and how these understandings influence the practice of change.
