Abstract [en]

The use of project-based organizing is a widespread phenomenon in contemporary economy and society. While the actual leadership task – leading a temporary task force towards the successful delivery of a complex goal – is in many ways an instance of general team leadership, the professionalization of Project Management has resulted in the build-up of specialized knowledge bases derived from theoretical and empirical inquiry into settings labeled as ‘projects’. Based on this reasoning, this paper reviews the knowledge base on project leadership as it is expressed in international scholarly literature. We start by tracing the historical developments back to the roots of the Project Management field, and continue by reviewing the current research trends. Extant research is problematized in terms of individualism, theoretical foundation and empirical basis.
