Orçun Küçükkoç ENG102.11 RESEARCH QUESTİON; DOES E-BUSINESS REQUIRE DIFFERENT LEADERSHIP CHARACTERISTICS? INTRODUCTION CONTROVERSY: E-business is a business line formed with developing technology. There are many thoughts about requirement of different leadership characterictics for e-business. Analysis into the characteristics of effective leaders has created two different theories. Universal leadership theories say that leadership exercises ' the best way ' and that leaders share a recognizable set of common qualities. It is argued that leaders are distinctly different from others and that the standard collection of leadership traits and actions that distinguishes them is universally applicable to all organisations and business environments (e.g. Lord et al., 1986; Kirkpatrick and Locke, 1991). With the advent of e-commerce and the new business models and organizational structures it has heralded, the debate on these opposing leadership concepts has acquired a strong functional significance. THESIS WITH A POSITION: Managers and researchers argue that leadership characteristics are important to e-business and have many advantages. E-business requires leadership traits for success. BODY A.

We are more virtues than any other thing.
