Leadership in projects is dynamic and alternates between actors. This presentation on the award-winning study of leadership reality in projects and its resulting theory of balanced and horizontal leadership outlines project-specific approaches to leadership. These include temporary appointments of horizontal leaders, as well as the dynamic assignment (i.e., the balancing) of leadership authority to the best possible leader in different situations. To that end, it outlines a framework including recently identified types of leadership and their situational contingencies. This includes the five events that make up horizontal leadership in projects. These are nomination of team members, identification of potential leaders, selection and empowerment of leaders, empowered leadership and its governance, as well as leadership transition. Moreover, the presentation addresses the coordination of these events through the socio-cognitive space, and the dynamic assignment of leadership authority to the best possible leader at a time, which is known as balanced leadership.
