A business organization is seen as a tool whose purpose and function is to integrate specialised knowledge into a common task, and put knowledge to work in pursuit of economic performance, without which it cannot discharge any other responsibilities (Drucker, 1992: 99)

Bateleur Business Consultants.

OwlStrategic decision-making and leadership are concepts that require the integration of many levels of thinking. Strategic decision-making is about the particular organization, in the context of many other organizations, and in the context of a number of very important systemic and distinct dynamics of modern society, i.e. politics, economy, law science and technology, health, etc.

In addition to those interactions, strategic decision-making and leadership is also about individuals who act within those systems and organizations The levels of analysis required are multiple and the differences and the interactions can be seen as conceptual harlequin balls that all have to be kept in the air and moving for significant insights to emerge.

Natural patternsOrganizational structures, both internal and external to the organization, have to be adapted to cope with the degree of change in the environment. The co-evolution of the system, its actors and its environment is "characterized in terms of their growth in complexity". Complexity in current decision-making has also increased, owing to the multiplicity of factors (captured by the number of variables (Boisot, 2006: 242)) which can be used to give meaning to behaviors, depending on the selected perspective (e.g. political, organizational norms and the individual within).

Bateleur Business Consultants will support you in your endeavours when dealing with complexity surrounding your organization by facilitating interactive sessions that synthesize key factors supporting your growth, analysis of assumptions, facts and information to support these in order to develop credible scenarios and select coherent strategies. Fundamental to change in behavior are the current and desire cultures within your organization.
