The 5 Structural Elements of Strategy: Decision-Making

Strategy has 5 Structural Elements – power distribution, decision-making, idea generation, ideas, process and people. Miss tuning one and you’ll fail. Add items that don’t blend and you’ll fail.
The way decisions are made in organizations determines how ideas are generated, and which ideas get considered.
The way decisions are made also influences how these ideas will get carried out later.

If ideas are valued in your culture, there’s a strong likelihood that it might not matter who generates the ideas.
