An Empirical Investigation into the Impact of Leadership on Organisational Performance: Case Study of Dangote Group (2013)

Leadership on Organisational Performance – This dissertation seeks to determine the state of leadership in a leading Nigerian Organisation, Dangote and the effectiveness of the same on Organisational performance outcomes. The research is essentially a phenomenological, subjective and qualitative research that is also interpretivist and an inductive approach to studying existing reality and adding to the knowledge on the same. The study uses structured interviews and random sampling technique to assemble data relating to the employee and managerial perceptions on leadership effectiveness in the Organisation.

The sample population subjected to the study is small, only six in number of which three are managers and three are subordinate employees; however, all of them are employed with Dangote at its headquarters in Lagos, and they do have the ring-side view and perceptions on the leadership and its effectiveness. The subjective approach enables the researcher to merge with the research setting and lends a human touch, unlike what would have been provided by a quantitative research. However, the research establishes an indirect relationship between leadership effectiveness, employee perceptions on the same and the Organisational impact; it does not seek to measure such impact nor establish a direct link between the variables. The research is exploratory and holds significance for further research, either qualitative or quantitative and it serves to prove existing leadership theories and leadership behaviour and their effects on Organisational factors and outcomes.

The answers to the questions are in two sets and their analysis reveals that leadership at Dangote is effective and driving the Organisation in the right direction. However, further research that specifically measures the outcomes would be needed and this approach is suited given the short time and resources available to the researcher. Dissertation objectives;
