The number of virtual organizations and project groups is increasing day by day and the management information systems and information technologies are used effectively in the business environment. The aim of this study is to research Leader Member Exchange (LMX) from e-leadership perspective in the organizations which use digital communication and virtual team applications based on information technologies and to reveal the effects of the developments caused by digitalization on leadership theory. The questionnaire was applied to 238 employees of the firms using information technologies intensively (daily %50 and up). The questionnaire consisted of statements on Leader Member Exchange (LMX) (from the perspective of the member) and Digital Technology Attitude scales. The results obtained from the questionnaire were analyzed by regression modeling and structural equation modeling. Significant relationships were found between the Leader Member Exchange and sub dimensions of Leader Member Exchange (affect, loyalty, contribution and respect) and the digital technology attitudes of the employees of the firms.
