Abstract

The concept of leadership is closely bonded with the concept of organization: one defines and influences the other. The consequences and situations in which these problems arise are shown in this paper. The question: “What kind of role organization plays for leadership in product development?”, is being approached by psychologists and construction methodizers in the context of an interdisciplinary project sponsored by the DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft). Until now, we have investigated five industrial product development departments and coached three of them to do better work. In this abstract we are presenting the experience of these investigations and our first detailed findings, focusing on the influence of organization. In addition to this, the theories, methods, and detailed findings of the investigations will be presented in this paper.
