At the top of every organization chart lies a myth — that the boss and the senior management team make all the critical decisions together. In reality, most decisions are actually made by the boss and an inner circle of confidants — a "team with no name" that exists outside formal processes.
In this Soundview Live webinar, Transforming Decision-Making, Bob Frisch provides a unique perspective on this widely misunderstood issue. He argues that the solution lies not in addressing behaviors, but in unseating the senior management team as the epicenter of decision making. Using a broad portfolio of teams — large and small, permanent and temporary, formal and informal — great leaders match each decision to the appropriate team in a fluid, flexible approach that you won’t find described in management textbooks.
