Abstract

An increasing awareness reflected in the literature, research, and among practitioners is the need to reassess leadership skills and attributes most needed for today's technologically savvy organization. The majority of models of organizational leadership emanated from the industrial era's thinking on organizational productivity, long before the technological tsunami's global impact, and in many aspects have less applicability today. This chapter considers the shift taking place in what constitutes leadership for organizational effectiveness-and even survival-- in the digital era and explores emergent ideas and research on a new paradigm of leadership, particularly for higher education, befitting today's digitally based, information age.
