This paper presents findings from an empirical study of manufacturing strategy formulation processes in three SMEs. The study investigated the relationship between manufacturing strategy formulation, leadership style, and organisation culture. The three companies had different formulation processes. One tentative explanation for this is due to leadership style and the personalised management that characterises SMEs. The investigation indicates that the two of the companies that had a power culture were more mature considering strategic work, and acted on more competitively exposed markets than the company with a support culture.
