A top management team (TMT) matters for its organization—but how? Although the assumption of TMT organizational impact may be widespread, it is also highly elusive, as researchers and practitioners often cannot pinpoint exactly how TMTs influence their organizations.
This book outlines how a TMT can matter most for its organization, and does so in a positive way by considering the most recent academic and practical insights. Two factors are critical: (1) inside the boardroom, TMT members' behavior determines the quality of strategic decisions, and (2) outside the boardroom, the way in which the TMT works with middle managers is crucial for the subsequent implementation of those decisions. Understanding how these two factors can be effectively performed can help you, TMT members, middle managers, team coaches, and HR practitioners grasp the complex mechanisms of TMT impact.
This book also provides an overview of the organizational mechanisms of TMT impact, and, when completed, you'll know how a TMT exerts influence and have more insight in how to make TMTs more effective in your organization.
