Local Group Darmstadt invites you to an online event: 

Balanced Leadership

with Prof Ralf Müller, DBA, MBA, PMP, PMI Fellow




Leadership in projects is dynamic and alternates between actors. This presentation on the award-winning study and theory of balanced and horizontal leadership outlines project-specific approaches to leadership. These include temporary appointments of horizontal leaders, as well as the dynamic assignment (i.e., the balancing) of leadership authority to the best possible leader in different situations. To that end, it outlines a framework including recently identified types of leadership and their situational contingencies. Attendees will learn about the five events that make up balanced leadership and their coordination through the socio-cognitive space. Take aways include insights about new leadership approaches, their fit to project situations, and the benefits in using them. Hence, it helps busy and/or multi-project managers to save time and effort by making best use of their team members’ leadership skills.

The presentation is based one of the largest research studies ever done in project management, where ten country teams conducted about 300 interviews and about 60 case studies worldwide, backed up by 174 responses to a global validation questionnaire. The study was funded by the PMI Sponsored Research Program. Among many recognitions it received is the 2019 IPMA Research Award.
