Fuzzy Management

Oxford University Press

Looking at historical circumstance may be a useful exercise when attempting to identify the ways to change an organization radically and quickly. This chapter shifts attention away from change and instead considers the possible impacts and relevance of leadership. Although leadership may imply change, the chapter looks into how leadership plays no small part in various contemporary theories. Although traditional models associated integral roles with leaders, some approaches do not give as much credit to leadership or even attempt to reconstruct the term's meaning. Leadership proves to be one of the more narrow aspects of management knowledge, while organizational theory is found to be the opposite. This chapter attempts to determine the practical impact on the theoretical account of personality on the notion of leadership, as well as the effect of a theory of organizations on leadership.

Keywords:   historical circumstance, theory of organizations, leadership, contemporary theories, traditional theories
