The essence of administering or managing an organization is about decision-making, policy formulation and implementation. Organization leadership (public or private) function and operates the system based on known and clearly stated policy guidelines. Policy is thus formulated as the framework that informs organization structure, management pattern, operational processes and relationships to achieving the corporate organizational set goals and objectives.
The formulation of policy proposal is usually the responsibility of the top executive or management depending on its scale and complexity. Thus, policy formulation in the Nigeria public service is often done by the President/Governor and Members of the executive branch (Ministers/Commissioners), as well as career and appointed administrative officials in Ministries, Departments and Agencies, including appointed committees and commissions. Others include the law makers (Legislators in national and state Houses of Assembly), who introduce bills for deliberation and consideration, and subsequent transmission to the executive arm for assent and implementation. In the private sector, it is the responsibility of the shareholders (AGM), Board of Directors and Management Board to proffer policy agenda, formulation and implementation respectively.
