Executives vs. Managers

In my consulting and coaching, I usually see clear distinctions between upper and lower levels of management on a number of factors including how time is used, people management skills, and overall perspective (tactical vs. strategic.)

One not-so-obvious factor is how decisions are made.  For example, when confronted with a purchase decision, senior managers think about return on investment whereas lower level managers are focus on  expense.

Of course, the return on investment and the risk of achieving it are the salient points.

Do you notice differences like this in your organization?
