Hierarchy of Strategy: The State of Play
There is broad support for the notion of a hierarchy of strategies within the extant strategy literature (Grant and King, 1982; Hax and Majluf, 1984; Hofer and Schendel, 1978). Hierarchical levels include: international, corporate, business, and functional (Hitt et al., 2007; Dess et al., 1995). This hierarchical categorisation is all too evident in the stream of theoretical and empirical publications across both strategy process and strategy content (Dess et al., 1995).
