Chapter 1: Introduction

1.1 Research Background

Project managers must be aware of various leadership styles to successfully plan, coordinate, schedule, supervise, motivate, build team spirit, maintain good relationships with stakeholders and shareholders, and make project action plans. Thus, understanding different leadership styles helps leaders choose the optimal style for a process and manage the project team.

Agile advocates recommend iterations, gradual development, collaboration, and adaption for the case study. The project also integrates agile using scrum. Any project methodology works best with the right leadership style (Henkel et al. 2019). Thus, assessing leadership styles is essential. The study examines leadership styles and how they affect agile project success.

1.2 Rationale

Agile project management improves procedures iteratively. Agile believes in constant improvement, as well as quality control, as well as quality control, improve products. Thus, integrating the agile approach into a project management system requires the project manager to create goals, guide the team, and ensure the timely delivery of deliverables. According to Marnewick and Marnewick (2019), agile adoption requires the project manager’s leadership style. Thus, identifying project progress including leadership style characteristics is crucial.

Additionally, contrasting project management leadership styles’ merits and cons is crucial. Leadership style also helps detect future business difficulties, project criticality, and critical success variables like competencies, institutional knowledge, and abilities. Thus, research is needed to identify agile project leadership styles and fill literature gaps. This project will benefit researchers working on a related topic and project managers in the field.
