roles that CEOs play on strategic management

The definition of "chief executive officer" (almost always) depends on whether a business is a corporation or not, that is, whether it (usually) has a board of directors or not. In an organization that has a board of directors, the "chief executive officer" is (usually) the singular organizational position that is primarily responsible to carry out the strategic plans and policies as established by the board of directors. In this case, the chief executive reports to the board of directors. In a form of business that is usually without a board of directors (sole proprietorship, partnership, etc.), the "chief executive officer" is (usually) the singular organizational position (other than partnerships, etc.) that sets the direction and oversees the operations of an organization.
The CEO in the process of strategic management should:
1. Clearly define the purpose of the organization and to establish realistic goals and objectives consistent with that mission in a defined time frame within the organization’s capacity for implementation.
2. Communicate those goals and objectives to the organization’s constituents.
3. Develop a sense of ownership of the plan.
4. Ensure the most effective use is made of the organization’s resources by focusing the resources on the key priorities.
5. Provide a base from which progress can be measured and establish a mechanism for informed change when needed.
6. Listen to everyone’s opinions in order to build consensus about where the organization is going.
7. Provide clearer focus for the organization, thereby producing more efficiency and effectiveness.
8. Bridge staff/employees and the board of directors (in the case of corporations).
9. Build strong teams in the board and in the staff/employees (in the case of corporations).
10. Provide the glue that keeps the board members together (in the case of corporations).
11.Produce great satisfaction and meaning among planners, especially around a common vision.
12. Increase productivity from increased efficiency and effectiveness.
13. Solve major problems in the organization.
