ICLM2018: Special Issue on: “Redefining Leadership in Managing Industrial Revolution”

Guest Editors:
Assoc. Prof. P.D.D. Dominic, Assoc. Prof. Fong-Woon Lai, Dr. Ding Hooi Ting and Dr. Ahmad Shahrul Nizam Isha, Universiti Teknologi Petronas, Malaysia
Traditional leadership mind-sets, styles and ways of working have been changing rapidly to cope with the speed, volatility, complexity and ambiguity of the competitive globalised operating environment. Organisations that understand and embrace business innovation can thrive. By studying their leadership practices, culture and ways of working, this special issue seeks to address the issues related to the inadequate alignment between traditional leadership and industrial revolution and how these two work together to improve business performance in a competitive world.
