Information Technology (IT) enables challenges and
opportunities for how enterprises organize themselves and how work
unfolds in digital settings. The changes in technology, work, organizations,
and humans’ mindset, call for new ways to discuss leadership. In these new
digital settings, traditional leadership no longer holds. Instead, new forms
of digital leadership are needed. In this paper we review the IS research
perspective on digital leadership. We conduct a systematic literature review
combined with a hermeneutical approach. We compare the findings from
our literature review with a theoretical lens inspired by e-leadership. We
find that IS research has an exclusive scope on strategic implications,
leaving out topics such as followership and emotions. On the other hand, IS
research contributes with exactly these issues of strategic leadership and
business transformation to the digital leadership discussion. We contribute
to IS research by defining digital leadership, proposing a theoretical lens of
three levels of analysis of digital leadership, as well as paths for future
