How will Artificial Intelligence (AI) Evolve Organizational Leadership? Understanding from the perspectives of Technopreneurs

      Abstract

      Artificial intelligence (AI) has rapidly developed in recent years and is now an invaluable tool for organizations. AI fundamentally alters how leaders make decisions and holds the promise of transforming future team dynamics. Although we are entering an era in which artificial intelligence is becoming increasingly imperative at the organizational leadership level, no high-quality scientific sources have been found concentrating on how AI will transform the prevailing organizational leadership. This research gap was addressed with this qualitative elaboration by conducting expert interviews with technopreneurs from 10 IT Companies in Pakistan. The findings explain that AL will evolve the prevalent state of organizational leadership through: (1) shifting leaders towards intelligent approaches (e.g., management 3.0), (2) implying that leaders are tech-savvy, (3) expanding human capacities, (4) learning and unlearning from traditional managerial competence, (6) inculcating AI-wise leadership characteristics (e.g., agility), (7) benchmarking sustainability, and (8) coaching leaders for tomorrow. AI fundamentally alters how leaders make decisions and holds the promise of transforming team dynamics in the future. These findings have important implications not only for the future of organizational leadership practices and research but also for the future of leadership development.
