Leadership Competency for Megaproject‘s Complexity Management: A Conceptual Study

R. W. Damayanti, B. Hartono, and A. R. Wijaya
Abstract—This study aims to formulate a project manager’s leadership competency to manage megaproject’s complexity. Through qualitative literature exploration, this study integrates seven organizational leadership theories to develop megaproject leadership competency. Technical, emotional social and adaptive competencies are proposed as components of megaproject leadership competency that are crucial for managing structural, social, and emergent complexity. This study contributes to scholarship by giving insight into the leadership theories that potentially expanded the megaproject realm. For the practitioners, among others the project manager, this study gives a description of competencies that could be considered for managing megaproject complexity.

Index Terms—Competency, complexity, leadership, megaproject.
