Abstract [sv]

Syfte           

Syftet är att få en djupare förståelse för vad som karakteriserar en skicklig ledare. Vidare syftar studien i att analysera hur ledaregenskaper, kulturer och ledarstilar bidrar till ett lyckat ledarskap. 

Metod                     

Baserat på en kvalitativ undersökning har jag undersökt vad som utgör en framgångsrik ledare inom IT-branschen. Jag har utfört sex djupgående intervjuer med högt uppsatta ledare (VD) i företag inom IT-branschen. Utfallet av dessa intervjuer redovisas och kopplas samman med teorier i kapitel 4, empirisk och teoretisk analys. Resultatet av min undersökning redovisas slutligen i avsnittet slutsats. 

Slutsats                      

Tendenser och mönster som har identifierats är att kommunikation blir allt mer centralt i organisationer. Jag har kommit fram till att en framgångsrik ledare inom IT-branschen bör vara lyhörd, resultat och målinriktad, ha empati och en god människosyn samt kunna anpassa sin ledarstil utifrån siuation. Jag har klargjort att företagskulturer i olika länder skiljer sig åt och både ledare och organisationer måste idag tänka multikulturellt och multietniskt för att bli framgångsrika.

Purpose          

The purpose is to get a deeper understanding of what characterizes a skilled leader. Furthermore, the study aims at analyzing how leadership qualities, cultures and leadership styles contribute to successful leadership

Method        

Based on a qualitative survey, I have investigated what constitutes a successful leader in the IT industry. I have conducted six in-depth interviews with senior executives (CEO) in companies in the IT industry. The outcome of these interviews is reported and merged in chapter 4, empirical and theoretical analysis. The result of my survey is finally reported in the section conclusion.

Conclusion     

Trends and patterns that have been identified are that communication is becoming more and more central in organizations. I have come to the conclusion that a successful leader in the IT industry should be responsive,results and  targeted, have empathy and a good human vision, and be able to adapt its leadership style based on siuation. I have made it clear that corporate cultures differ in different countries, and both leaders and organizations need to think multicultural and multiethnic today to be successful.
