Variations on Crisis Leadership in Business and Public Administration: A Bibliometric Analysis

Konuralp Sezgili

Crises are disruptive events that represent a threat to the existence of organizations, making the study of leadership a core component of crisis management. Crisis leadership focuses on preparing organizations for and surviving crises, as well as leading thereafter. This comprehensive framework has led to several disciplines addressing crisis leadership. While there is a substantial body of literature on crisis leadership, there is a lack of bibliometric research that compares and contrasts the conceptual characteristics and intellectual patterns of the two most essential management disciplines, business and public administration. To address this gap, bibliometric methods were applied to assess the academic performance and trends, to disclose the variations in intellectual patterns, and to identify the conceptual roots of both domains. In addition to the descriptive study of performance metrics, the analytical results reveal that conceptual foundations vary considerably and are intellectually reflected by variations. The research offers readers with a road map and implications for future research.
