This paper develops four lists of leading authors on leadership and managerial effectiveness and examines the distribution over time of works by those authors on those topics. In this way, not only are leading authors identified, but changing patterns are also determined. This approach suggests that number of citations, while inadequate as a sole measure of importance, may assist in identifying leading authors for teachers to use in course design, scholars to use in literature searches, and students of management thought to use in examining patterns of change.
