Abstract [en]

The focus of the current paper is the formally shared leadership between managers. Position-sharing within pairsof managers demonstrates an alternative way of organising leadership within a managerial position. This paperaims to contribute knowledge about how to understand the phenomenon of formally shared leadership betweenmanagers, and to suggest concepts for its different forms. In the research literature, a range of different terms isused and it is difficult to see how or when this variation in labels is useful. Shared leadership between managersis here studied in relation to three perspectives: organisational structure, managers’ experiences, and tasks andresponsibilities. Future research has several questions left to answer in order to further understand the relativelywidespread but under-researched issue of shared leadership between managers.
