Abstract

This paper reports on a Leadership Foundation funded research project exploring the ways in which one UK institution has implemented a new ‘distributed’ leadership model. Crucially, the project examines the impact of the model on both those who are leaders and those being led. The report is organised over seven sections. First, we provide the rationale for the study. Second, we give contextual background to the model being examined. Third, we outline the research project’s key aims and research questions. Next, we outline the theoretical framework that guided the study. Then, we describe the study’s methods, present the findings and, in the final section, highlight a range of questions which have arisen from our research for the case study institution to consider.
