Background of Research: One of important factor in sustainability and the achievement of organizational goals is strategic leadership. Strategic leadership emphasizes the importance of organizational leaders to have vision that can be realized in a practical level by all members of the organization so that all resources within the organization can be used optimally to the achievement of objectives (Hitt & Ireland, 2005). In this case the leader is expected to bring the organization achieve the expected goals. Leaders are not only obliged to perform managerial functions but are also expected to create a culture that adaptive to environmental organizations.
Introduction: Strategic management is of ten seen as the task of top management. Whet her view ed as a process or a practice, the senior management team plays a pivotal role in strategy; pushing a strategic agenda from above or cultivating one from the bottom‐up. In this Case Study, Roger Corbett, with his decade’s long experience with strategy and decision‐making on the shop floor and in the boardroom, leads the discourse on the role of top management teams. Specifically, the relationships between strategy, leadership and governance are discussed.
Theoretical Background: Attempts to identify the link ages between the characteristics of managers and the firm’s strategic choices and overall strategy have been many and frequent.v This research has discovered that “observable top management characteristics such as age, industry and organizational experience, functional background and education level” as well as education and core specialization vi has a direct impact on the strategies that firms pursue; particularly in relation to the link between the leaders acceptance of risk and the pursuit of build or harvest strategies. Over time the premise of strategic choice theory has developed, stating that the overriding factors in strategic decision‐making are the personal characteristics and values of the decision‐maker.
