The research addressed the problem of technology initiatives failing to meet organizational objectives. The purpose of the quantitative correlation study was to determine the relationship between transformational leadership styles, decision-making styles, and technology readiness. The findings of the study answered research questions in three areas: transformation leadership styles in relationship to decision-making styles, transformational leadership styles in relationship to technology readiness, and decision-making styles in relationship to technology readiness. The sample was a group of leaders at a large rural school district in Wyoming. Findings indicated no evidence of transformational leadership styles as related to the dependent variables. Evidence was found that decision-making styles have a relationship to technology readiness. The significance of the study was to increase knowledge in the areas of leadership, decision-making, and technology implementation.
