Leading Change

Dealing with the complexity of technological change processes and the associated areas of tension poses major challenges for managers, especially when it comes to developing new types of technological capabilities, managing organizational transformation processes, and implementing new technologies in organizations (Leading Technological Change). In dynamic markets, managers must face and skillfully balance competing and sometimes diverging demands. Areas of tension such as old vs. new, efficiency vs. flexibility, and routine vs. innovation must be continuously reconciled, as must the need to implement a learning environment in addition to the performance context (Ambidextrous Leadership). This requires strategic and conceptual skills as well as a strong sense of self as a leader. Only then will it be possible to guide sensegiving and sensemaking processes appropriately to bring teams along with the change and to lead the organization into the future. Our research focuses on how leaders can meet this challenge in order to be successful in the long term and to help shape their environment.
