Deployment is a costly and intricate process that requires specific success factors. Previous research focused on management, overlooking user perspectives. The study uses a quantitative methodology to <br />gather data from 300 employees in private Higher Education Institutions, focusing on user perspectives rather than <br />management.

We <br />concentrate on how task engagement, creative climate, and authentic leadership interact and affect innovative performance. It is anticipated that genuine leadership creates an atmosphere at work that inspires employees to give their best at work. Consequently, this increased engagement will result in better inventive performance. Employee data from telecommunication sector was gathered to investigate these links. Descriptive statistics were analyzed using SPSS software and structural equation modelling was made easier with AMOS. The expected results seek to shed light on how employee engagement and leadership styles can be strategically utilized to foster an innovative culture in the telecom <br />sector—a business that is notorious for its persistent need for adaptability. We argue that task engagement and employee <br />invention are positively correlated and that this correlation is amplified when an organization fosters creativity. <br />In addition to providing insightful information about the role that real leadership plays in encouraging employee creativity, this study gives telecom companies a tactical framework for developing a workforce full of innovative problem-solvers. Businesses in the telecommunication industry can enable their staff to become the engine of ongoing innovation by providing an atmosphere that encourages openness, self-awareness, shared values, and a positive,creative work environment. </p> Shahram Atta Chaudhry Samina Nawab Khurram Shafi Copyright (c) 2024 International Journal of Business and Management Sciences https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 2024-06-03 2024-06-03 5 2 48 67
