The successful digital transformation of public administration requires well-prepared leaders with the appropriate competencies. The aim of this study is to empirically validate and compare the measures for developing digital leadership competencies in the public sector that were previously identified in a literature review1 . Guided interviews with ten public sector employees at managerial and non-managerial levels were used to validate the identified competency development measures. The findings help to expand knowledge about the requirements and chal- lenges of digital transformation in the public sector and identify additional potential measures for developing these competencies in the context of leadership recruitment and development. This study explains basic concepts such as digital leadership and competencies, describes the methods of qualitative data collection and analysis, presents the results of the study, and discusses them in terms of research questions, limitations of the study, and implications for practice and research.
