At this level decisions tend to relate to issues with long term such as restructuring, major financial investments and other strategic undertakings related to companies’ future rather than present. Information necessary for decision making at this level is comprehensively gathered not only from the internal sources of the company itself, but it also involves external information, such as data related to economic situation or sectors as a whole.
