Strategic Responsiveness: How to Circumvent the Formal Strategy Process

    Publikation: KonferencebidragPaperForskningpeer review


    The analysis of major resource committing decisions is central focus in
    the strategy field, but despite decades of rich conceptual and empirical
    research we still seem distant from a level of understanding that can
    guide corporate practices under dynamic and unpredictable conditions.
    Strategic decision making is often conceived as ‘standing on the two
    feet’ of deliberate or intended strategic decisions by top management
    and emergent strategic decisions pursued by lower-level managers and
    employees. In this view, the paper proposes that bottom-up initiatives
    have a hard time surfacing in hierarchical organizations and that lowerlevel managers and employees, therefore, pursue various strategies to bypass the official strategy processes to act on emerging strategic issues and adapt to changing environmental conditions.
