Transformational Leadership in Complex Environments

I need your views on how to develop transformational leadership in a government sector, where there are messy, complex, wicked problems.
Is transformational leadership suitable to deal with wicked problems (in the state sector)?

Transformational Leadership in Complexity

Transformational leadership can help with your situation; however, it is most effective in creating the environment you'll need when a high degree of it exists. What I mean is, that senior officers and executives alike espouse and practice it.
However, your situation sounds complex and so no single change is likely to produce the results you seek. I would also look at improving internal communication, examining the various challenges to find core problems that are spawning difficulties, and settling on a decision making process that identifies when the decision is best left to an individual (expert or leader) and when it is best addressed by a team.
