Can leaders make a difference to organisational performance?

Thu 18 Apr 2013, 19:00 - 20:15

The British Academy, 10-11 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AH


In this talk Andrew Pettigrew introduces the field of Business and Management research by exploring one of its central questions. He considers what is known and not known about the links between leadership, change and organisational performance. He also argues that the biggest leadership challenges for the future lie not just in the familiar territory of institutional change, but the much more difficult area of changing large, complex systems.
