This course is based on the article, Changing dynamics of team leadership in global project environments by Hans J Thamhain. The article is based on research that analysed the team leadership styles and organisational conditions that are most conducive to team performance in project environments that are geographically dispersed across national borders, and operating in technological complex, culturally-diverse, multinational environments.

Team leadership; changing dynamics.
