Top-down Approach

 
   

Definition: a Top-down Approach is an autocratic and hierarchical style of decision making, organizational change and leadership, in which strategies or plans are first conceived by one or a few top managers, and then disseminated (cascaded) further down the organizational structure.
The lower levels in the hierarchy are, to a greater or lesser extent, bound by the decisions of the top management.
