For an execution of a rule, or a decision, there should be well-mapped strategies to get the necessary support from the relevant field. An administrator who lacks with these strategies will ultimately be in conflict even though the action taken is for welfare of the workers and the organization.
To fulfill these responsibilities, an administrator has to challenge with factors like personnel, time, funds, facilities, and methods. On top of these things, he should consider the action and reaction of his workers, superiors, and competitors.
He has to decide the most advantageous way to discharge both his responsibilities and control the related background well for the organization and the personnel in it. Then he should think ways and means to implement the action - strategies.
A person in the hierarchy of management, regardless of what the position he is in, has to fulfill above responsibilities in some extent. From the head supervisor to the Director or Chairman these responsibilities are equally important. To achieve their target to the benefit of the organization, the strategy of action comes to forefront with a big bang.
The head supervisor may make a strategy to treat his sub supervisors gallantly to get the work done efficiently while the chairman tries to get full cooperation of his board members by providing convenient time to assemble and beautiful locations and food to go with that.
The strategies will go lower to the top to bottom. The supervisor does not need to take that much of strategies where as the director has to take so many strategies as he is responsible of all the departments in the organization. This theory as to situation of opportunities for strategy may forward as funnel theory according to which the big opportunities for taking strategies lies in the hand of the Chairman or Director.
We must bear in mind that there are informal leaders in an organization who use strategies to gain advantage from various opportunities. They act in an environment where the legitimate power holder is weak or inefficient to manipulate situation at hand well for the benefit of the organization.
Their weaknesses will enhance the informal leader’s to make their empire building legitimate.
It is obvious that a good leader is strategic. The strategic administrator is full of contradictions as he is in the position to change according to his circumstances. At one time, he may be sensitive to everyone; while another time he is consistent and inflexible and even take the ground that all should obey the rules. He can act strategically towards one person and act altogether differently to some other person. Nevertheless, as far as strategy and execution are concerned, an administrator should meet the values of moral and legal conduct, as those are cornerstone of any society or organization in the world.
