Relationship between the Full Range Leadership Model and Information Technology Tools Usage
Landell, Antonio White
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Capella University
Due to major technological and social changes, world dynamics have undergone tremendous leadership style and technology transitions. The transformation of information technology tools usage (ITTU) created a new paradigm confronting leaders that can provide the right change of vision to effectively motivate, inspire, and transform others to work at their maximum potential and embrace new changes that are effective for their organizations. The purpose of this quantitative correlational empirical study is to evaluate whether the full range leadership model (FRLM) leadership styles known as (a) transformational, (b) transactional, and (c) laissez-faire (Bass & Avolio, 2004) impact ITTU systems and what relationship, if any, exists between ITTU systems and leadership decision-making outcomes. Although ITTU systems have the potential to assist leaders in their decision-making processes, only a few leadership styles have leveraged this opportunity. This study investigates the relationship between the FRLM and ITTU as measured by the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (MLQ) (Avolio & Bass, 2004), the Technology Acceptance Module (TAM) (Davis, 1989), and was aggregated by the Multivariate and Correlation Analysis SPSS (Boslaugh, 2005; Norusis, 2008). The literature review preceding this study has established an historical correlation framework to illustrate the progression of technology and how it has fostered the decision-making process in various leadership styles. The survey incorporated demographic items, mainly government-affiliated leaders and technology users as participants. The results, findings, implications, and recommendations are addressed, which showed a strong correlational relationship adding to the body of knowledge that researchers, technology tools users, and senior leaders may implement or further evaluate in their decision-making process.
