The fate of any country is determined in the light of decisions made by the rulers, policy-makers, managers, and experts of the governance and managerial system of that country. The constitution or the basic rules of any country are the infrastructures of that country's national policies, which are based on a variety of strategic and operational decisions. Some of these decisions are raised at governance level, and some carry managerial or operational content. These two important sets of decisions are made by rulers (policy-makers and statesmen) and public servants, respectively. Accordingly, the "quality of governance" and "property and country administration" depends on the quality of these decisions. Meanwhile, national strategic decisions, which are the basis of each and every day of the decisions of the governing and administrative system of each country, are doubly important. Therefore, making "bad strategic decisions", "delaying national strategic decisions", and finally "making strategic decisions with delay" threaten the fate of the present and future of any country. In this study, the above-mentioned issues are examined, its implications for the Iranian state are reviewed, the characteristics of good national decisions will be described, and the future research needed in this field will be discussed.
