Senior level managers are challenged by the need to deal with some of the most complex issues in the organization requiring decision making and problem solving, even at times when the future is unclear or uncertain. Many aspects have to be considered such as Federal/State/Local politics, changing regulations, increasing or changing customer needs, vendor issues, overlapping systems with differing needs and priorities, as well as staff competencies and training needs. Very few leaders are trained to effectively handle managing change in times of organizational complexity. In order for the organization to thrive and last, long term plans must be made to address an often ambiguous future.
