Learning to trust in organisational complexity – A theoretical framework of complexity leadership and collaborative community theories

Adam Krisko & Elinor Stiles

Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt

Abstrakt

The following study proposes and evaluates a model for conducting organisational analyses, based on a theoretical framework combining the complexity leadership and collaborative community theories. The two theories were placed parallel to one another and combined into a research model. The model was applied to conduct a case study analysis about the organisational behaviour of the U.S. based aviation company, Southwest Airlines, and the leadership processes of one of the founders of the company, Herb Kelleher. The case study analysis demonstrated that the framework, based on the points at which the complexity leadership and collaborative community theories overlap, can in fact be used to analyse leadership behaviour and its wider implications for organisations.
