Leadership Team members as called for by the situation –How the situation creates leadership practice needs –Who leadership team is (official & unofficial members), needs they meet –The followers degree of shared purpose, their computer uses, creates demand for various leadership practices 2. Leadership Team Interactions (and situation) –The interactions that occur as they carry out their technology leadership practice –Reciprocal shaping: tech purpose & tech leadership practice –The situation constrains and enables the interactions among leaders
