This chapter discusses several basic elements of leadership and collaboration in building networked communities. It includes: • The context for collaborating, that is, the new economy imperative of digital competition; • The continuum of goals in networked communities—from simple communication objectives to more complex economic development objectives; • The structures needed to encourage the widest community collaboration; • The leaders that are needed within organisations and across industries; • The leadership style adapted to the formation and performance phases of networks; • The recruitment and retention of leaders; • Evaluation of the leadership and collaborative environment of the networked community.
