This chapter examines the senior leadership team's role in the organisation and its contribution to strategic decision-making and agility. We develop a conceptual framework of strategic agility in senior leadership teams, proposing that a combination of distributed cognition and behavioural integration form the basis of an effective transactive memory system, which enables senior leadership teams to foster agility in firm-level decision-making. Further, using data from Fortune 500 Global senior leadership teams, we show how our conceptual framework can help to advance a more nuanced understanding of companies’ approaches to strategic agility in senior leadership teams.
