Abstract

Strategies within organizations are often depicted as missions and plans formulated at the very top and disseminated down the organization in a cascade of communication (e.g., Ansoff, 1965; Chandler, 1962). In such depictions, top-level leaders often are imbued with a heroic, larger-than-life quality (Meindl & Ehrlich, 1987) and middle-level managers and lower-level employees are portrayed as passive followers of the strategies dictated from the top.
