Abstract

The research in the field of project management has already highlighted leadership styles with respect to group and task needs in the project, individual performance levels, this paper is based on the assumptions that leadership challenges are far more dependent on the project life cycle and, more specifically, the sub-phases than previously discussed.
This paper suggests that adaptive changes in the situational leadership style adopted by the project manager toward his team during different sub-phases within the implementation phase in a project life cycle could enhance the probability of getting a higher degree of project success. These changes in the leadership styles are necessitated by the timing element which plays a vital role in a given project situation arising the need to switch.
