Why should decision making strategy be short?
A: So internal customers may use as a guide for desired decision making.
A: Misunderstandings are reduced and decision making effectiveness
A: To involve more people in the desired decision making process.
Who in the organization must own the strategy? Developing the strategy is one of the few duties of senior leadership that cannot be delegated.
Do the benefits of sharing the strategy with the entire organization generally out weigh any of the downside risks? People will understand where the organization is headed and that their decisions will be more consistent than ever before. With effective decisions, the costs of the organization will start to come into line.
A strategic assessment must cover not only the internal position of the organization, but also should address the external competition and environment in which the organization must operate.
In short no growing organization can effectively control costs, once it grows beyond a certain size, without a carefully planned and written strategy.
