If Building Commitment for Knowledge-Based Decision to Create Quality Management : The Role of Transformational Leadership in Higher Education Governance Good in Developing Countries: A Literature Review

Supardi ., V. Rudy Handoko, Achluddin Ibnu Rochim


This paper explores, especially through a systematic literature review, the role of transformational leadership in universities in developing countries in relation to university governance. This paper argues that this role needs to be explored because transformative leadership of tertiary institutions in developing countries is still little researched and provides debate with local cultural perspectives. This paper reviews the Google Scholar database, SAGE journals, Taylor and Francis journals, and Emerald journals with the keywords "Transformational leadership" AND "higher education". Articles selected by inclusion criteria are carried out in developing countries, conducted between 2016-2020, and are limited to only the 2 7 most relevant articles. Inthis article, as many as 27 research results were analyzed qualitatively. Three main themes specifically emerge as the role of transformational leadership in universities in developing countries. This role includes: as a driver and provider of infrastructure for participatory knowledge-based decision making, a drive for stakeholder commitment to carry it out, and a guarantor of quality-based higher education governance.

Keywords: transformational leadership, universities, developing countries, decision making, organizational commitment, quality management
