Why firms adhere to or deviate from their strategic plans is poorly
understood. However, theory and limited research suggest that the
process through which such plans emerge may play a part.

to their plans.

However, the relationship between top management decision-sharing and
adherence to plans may be affected by a firmâ€™s strategic mission (its fundamental approach to increasing sales revenue and market share, and

[quote="chunjuwu]Research and theory suggest that top management decision-sharing
may have a more positive relationship with adherence to plans among firms with harvest strategies than among firms with build strategies
