Abstract

The objective of this study was to examine how innovative work behavior moderates the association between transformational leadership style and project success among IT professionals. A sample of 200 IT professionals was selected from various government sector IT departments located in Punjab and KPK. Data were collected using three reliable measures: the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire by Bass & Avolio (1997), the Project Success Scale by Aga, Noorderhaven, & Vallejo (2016), and the Innovative Work Behavior Scale by Janssen (2000). The study's results demonstrated a significant positive relationship between transformational leadership style and its dimensions. Additionally, using Andrew Hayes' process model for moderation regression analysis, the study confirmed that innovative work behavior plays a significant positive role in the relationship between transformational leadership and project success among IT professionals. Finally, the study's implications for future research were discussed.
