Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Talented people move up quickly

Cons

Lack of strategic focus. Senior management staff should be providing the inroads from marketing, product building, thought leadership and strategy development. Just a club that sets a goal and checks utilization.

Advice to Management

You can't outsource strategy. Your senior management staff has to be the cultural leader and strategy provider.
