Abstract

How do leaders react to different requirements and how successful are they in doing so? This question is part of a research project of engineers and psychologists, which aims to analyse leadership processes in design. In three engineering design departments leadership processes were observed and analysed. 321 situations were evaluated due to activities and performance. The data reveal that relevant leadership situations in design departments are primarily related to coordinating and planning activities. Furthermore, it can be shown that the types of requirements (content, process, relation) are managed differently in terms of success. Deficient leadership qualities arise especially in situations of goal elaboration and conflict management.

Keywords: leadership activities, field study, empirical investigation, types of requirements, conflict management, planning
