The requirements for effective contemporary leadership are changing along with leadership perspectives and priorities as more creative, innovative and entrepreneurial responses are required in the face of multiple challenges, opportunities and possibilities. Openness, diversity, collaboration, understanding creativity, innovation, entrepreneurship and their interrelation, and the factors that help and/or hinder them have become more important. Changing business models, challenges and opportunities are creating new arenas for both leadership and entrepreneurship and their success requirements are converging to such an extent that in certain contexts they may soon be almost indistinguishable.

 
 
People, organizations, communities and societies face challenges ranging from global warming and climate change to the impacts of disruptive technologies and new business and operating models. More than incremental adjustment may be required if we are to cope. For Schumpeter (1961), the sustained profitability of commercial enterprises is a consequence of innovation, which can require a combination of creativity and entrepreneurship. Creativity and innovation are also required in the public and voluntary sectors if, despite resource constraints and the changing and growing demands being placed upon them, they are to deliver acceptable services to the citizens who depend upon them (Dimock, 1986; and Coulson-Thomas, 2012b).
