My company has a management team that does not think strategically. We come up with strategies, but no one sticks to them or we easily get taken off course because of someone's bad decision.
A lot of the times they don't think at all. Some one comes up with a random idea and they want to immediately run with it no matter how off strategy it is.
A lot of their decision making is made based on personal opinion or gut feel instead of grounded in research or thought process.
A lot of times I end up having to defend their decisions to agency and promotional partners and have a tough time with it. Some times I can come up with something good, other times I just tell the truth (which doesn't come with some risk as it could always come back to bite me).
Have any of you found yourselves in a similar position? If so how did you handle it? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciate.
