strategic choice

You are here


Strategic choice is a systemic theory of strategy. This theory is built on a notion of interaction in which organizations adapt to their environment in a self-regulating, negative-feedback (cybernetic) manner so as to achieve their goals. The dynamics, or pattern of movement over time, are those of movement to states of stable equilibrium. Prediction is not seen as problematic. The analysis is primarily at the macro level of the organization in which cause and effect are related to each other in a linear manner. Micro-diversity receives little attention and interaction is assumed to be uniform and harmonious.
