This paper aims to review the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoint practical implications from cutting-edge research and case studies.
This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds personal impartial comments and places the articles in context.
In a study about the increasing importance in today’s organizations of shared leadership, it was found to be positively associated with team performance, and this association was mediated by information sharing. Demographic diversity moderated the relationship between shared leadership and team performance, such that shared leadership was more strongly associated with team performance in more diverse teams and less in less diverse teams.
The paper provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world’s leading organizations.
The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to-digest format.
The Publisher wishes to retract the precis article “Team tactics in shared leadership: Pros and cons of demographic diversity”, published in Strategic Direction, Vol. 30 No. 10, 2014. It has come to the attention of Emerald Publishing that this precis article contains large sections of unattributed text taken from the original research article “Shared leadership, diversity, and information sharing in teams”, by Julia E. Hoch, published in Journal of Managerial Psychology, Vol. 29 No. 5, 2014.
Precis articles are intended to summarise original academic research articles for a different audience, and should not include verbatim passages from the original articles. This error occurred due to a miscommunication in the commissioning process.
