This paper discusses how the Hersey-Blanchard’s leader-follower relationship theory was used to evaluate the linkage between the behaviours of IS project leaders and project outcomes. The study identified a correlation between leadership and the successful achievement of project time and cost objectives but not with system quality. The research confirmed that a leader is able to affect success by performing a different role, depending upon the project situation.
