A company can benefit immensely if a consultation on the company’s strategic management and business policy happens both while the policy is originally being drafted, but also continues after the strategic management and business policy has already been put into place. Ongoing and frequent consultation can help the company identify problems or shortcomings in the organization’s strategic management and business policy which it may not have been able to anticipate when it was originally drafting the policy.
A strategic management and business policy can be developed by a company in order to provide guidance to the employees of the company that will allow them to understand the expected response from them in many events that can be anticipated to develop in the normal course of business. However, one obstacle to this is the fact that often unforeseen circumstances may develop that a company, even one that has undergone an exhaustive consultation process, will not have a strategic management and business policy in place to handle.
In addition, after the policy is in place, it may be possible that the strategic management and business policy will present shortcomings or problems if it is instituted strictly. Therefore, the manager of a business should anticipate the need to interpret the policy to a limited extent in order to allow the company to operate effectively and efficiently.
