Theory on strategic leadership effects gives short shrift to the institutional context in establishing the impact of chief executive officers (ceos) and top management teams (tmts) on strategic decision making processes.

We develop a set of exemplary propositions to substantiate this thesis and trace its implications for theory and testing on strategic leadership effects on the firm.
