Strategic control at the CEO level.Long Range Plann. 1991 Dec; 24(6):78-87.LR
This study of 108 corporations is intended to identify and validate those strategic control factors that contribute directly to the success of strategic decisions made at the level of the CEO which are subsequently implemented throughout the organization. In direct response to a comprehensive questionnaire, 61 CEOs rated nine strategic control factors. Only the ratings of CEOs were accepted and processed in this study. Their ratings revealed areas of obvious strength and correctable weakness in their perceptions of strategic control within their respective organizations. These ratings tended to validate a conceptual process model of strategic control.
