Abstract (Summary)

In 2015-2025, executive decision-makers who do not have the leadership competencies necessary to generate appropriate responses to human-induced and naturally occurring crises will adversely affect the lives and livelihood of tens of millions of people within hours. The purpose of this qualitative, modified Delphi study was to discover the crises businesses and military executives will encounter in the timeframe 2015-2025 and the competencies executives will need to demonstrate to reduce risk and make decisions in the best interest of businesses and military organizations given these crises. The central phenomenon was executive leader decision-making. Variables that interacted most prominently with executive leader decision-making were crises, competencies, and consequences. The conclusions achieved a meta-competency framework, Sense-Understand-Strategize-Synchronize, for mitigating crises and achieving end-states.
