Global leadership has been shaped by three major forces of change: liberalization (trades, policies, etc.), globalization and technology development. From an examination of the history of exponential change faced by companies, the authors notice a new style of management is flourishing. A review of scholarly and literary works on management reveals that there is a wide array of techniques to describe leadership practice and its intricacies.
