Becker, Karen L., Short, Tom, & Stehlik, Tom (2009) Developing leadership and management capability for the future of an industry. In Beaumont, Nicholas (Ed.) 23rd Annual Australia and New Zealand Academy of Management Conference (ANZAM 2009), 1-4 December 2009, Southbank, Melbourne.
The importance of having effective managers in an organisation who possess both management and leadership abilities is rarely questioned. However, should we be taking this a step further and looking to the challenge of leadership within an industry sector? The rail industry in Australia faces a challenging future: an aging workforce, geographical spread, privatisation and corporatisation, plus particular issues of industry image and culture. This paper reports the findings of an exploratory study into the current approaches to leadership and management development in the Australian rail industry. It discusses critical issues facing the sector and outlines some theoretical approaches to addressing these issues.
