Why firms adhere to or deviate from their strategic plans is poorly

process through which such plans emerge may play a part. In particular, top management decision-sharing consensus-oriented, team-based decision-makingâ€”may increase the likelihood that firms will adhere to their plans, because those involved in the decision-making may be more committed to the chosen course of action, thereby increasing the likelihood that organizations will subsequently adhere
