Why Command & Control Decision Making Doesn’t Work

A command-and-control decision-making model is characterized by a top-down approach, where decision-makers issue directives and expect compliance from subordinates without much discussion or input.

This approach tends to be hierarchical and focused on maintaining control, often based on a leader’s intuition or past experiences rather than on objective data. This approach is less likely to adapt to changes or incorporate feedback, as the decision-making power rests primarily with the leader.
