Resource description

Notions of information processing and firm resources are used to create a contingency theory for the role of operations executives in the process of strategy. This role is defined by a balance between 'functional deliberation' within the operations function and 'top-level communication' with the chief executive officer and other functional heads. Conjectures about the value of both processes lead to propositions regarding the effect of environment and resources on the proper balance between the two.
