There is a limited research on the mediating role of the switch leadership style between the working environment and project success. Therefore, this study aims to examine the mediating role of switch leadership between the dynamic working environment and project success. This study adopted an online survey instrument to collect cross-sectional data from 160 project managers and team members of telecommunications companies in Pakistan. The path mediation analysis revealed partial mediation of switch leadership between the dynamic working environment and project success, Finding suggests that the Pakistani telecommunications sector is susceptible to changes in leadership styles, and the chances of project being successful could be greatly improved if the switch style of leadership is adopted by project managers. Moreover, researchers need to continue identifying different leadership styles and practitioners need to adopt different switch leadership styles not only to increase the chances of project success but also to counter the impacts of complexities found in IT projects.
