The effects of leadership on employee satisfaction in the project environment

by Zillman, Greg P., Ph.D., CAPELLA UNIVERSITY, 2012, 177 pages; 3547174


The purpose of this study was to determine if there was correlation between LMX leadership, gender, and age, and satisfaction in project management. This relationship has been established in the organizational environment but there are differences between organizational and project management. It was theorized that the LMX relationship to satisfaction is as relevant in project management as it is in organizational management. Questions from the LMX-7 and AJDI/AJIG surveys, as well as questions related to gender and age were asked to 387 working project managers. The results were analyzed using linear regression and correlation analysis. The findings indicated that there is correlation between LMX leadership and satisfaction and between age and satisfaction, but not between gender and satisfaction.
