Abstract (Summary)

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.
