Are you asking yourself "how do I lead in the situation when there is no one specifically in charge, multiple stakeholders are involved in the decision making process, and there is no way you can force people to do what needs to be done?"

It is about the purpose, the group of people who are charged with producing something related to that purpose in partnership and collaboration with others. Leadership today requires a paradigm shift in order to be more effective and deliver results.
