Digital leadership

training on-demand

We are developing a new, research-based leadership training course that brings leadership training into the small and medium-sized businesses

The iLEAD project is an interdisciplinary research collaboration between Copenhagen Business School, University of Copenhagen and University of Aarhus. It runs from 2017 to 2021 and has received 7 million DKK in funding from the Danish Industry Foundation. 


Who and what’s it all about? 

The iLEAD team is an interdisciplinary group of researchers with higher academic backgrounds in psychology, management, digitalization and economics from CBS, KU and AU.

Working closely with the Danish business environment, the iLEAD research team has developed a web-based course for management development. The aim is to improve management skills within smaller and medium sizedcompanies based in Denmark. The project is based on research carried out in management, digitalisation and learning.  

The first iLEAD programme is completed, and the next programme is set to start in early 2020.  The iLEAD project works closely with the following organisations: The Confederation of Danish Industry, the Danish Chamber of Commerce, Innovation Fund Denmark, and SME Denmark. The overall goal is to strengthen the skills of future leaders – so as to benefit growth and improved competitiveness. 


The iLEAD research addresses effects from digital leadership development by means of a web-application. It focuses on dealing with the following general leadership issues and needs:

  1. Transfer issues: From theory to practice

The management development programmes are designed so that leaders get to put theory into practice based on their own current situations within the company. This is done by merging the companies where the leaders are working with the leadership training and by means of web-application.

2. Accommodating individuality: Suitable for own leadership needs

Leadership issues that managers face are often specific and can be difficult to accommodate in leadership courses. Those taking part in this programme deal with a practical issue of their choice based on four general goals. 

3. Teaching through feedback: Feedback from oneself, from colleagues and employees

Feedback is essential for any kind of learning process, which is why the programme includes three kinds of feedback: own feedback (structured reflection), from colleagues (through dialogue), and from employees (by means of survey).

4. Informating: Data and their application

We all apply data, but which and how is a challenge any leader is deals with. This is addressed in the programme through theoretical and practical exercises.   


These four general issues are dealt with by means of practical exercises, podcasts, videos, scenarios (cases), goal-theory-based quizzes, reflection, the job demands-resource model, resource based theory, leadership strategies, planning theory, theory on communication and delegating, problems solving as well as knowledge within data and information handling.
