No that's typically not the case; rather previous management didn't make any decisions--there was a backlog. An organization suffers more from the lack of decisions than from bad decisions. Why? With bad decisions at least you learn; you get feedback; you have a frame of reference; the middle managers in the organization at least have a direction. With no decisions little is learned; you get no feedback; you have no frame of reference; and middle managers have no idea what to do. The same thought applies to governmental bodies.
