Leadership in the Global Context: Key themes, Patterns and Anatomy of the Evolving Field

Abstract

Globalization in all its guises has brought with it a significant number of opportunities, along with several challenges for organizations. One of the ongoing challenges in this regard relates to the identifying and securing of global leadership capabilities required for transnational organizational effectiveness. The practice led demand for global leaders has been mirrored by a significant upward trend in academic scholarship on global leadership since the early 1980s. Hence, the current study provides a more comprehensive assessment of the trends in the literature through bibliometric and text mining analyses. The key themes are generated using the title, keywords and abstract of journal articles in Nvivo pro 11 software.
