They have quite a considerable flexibility in management and decision making, only at the level of global strategy the corporation must coordinate its activities with the top management. Arrangement of large corporations into SBUs is an example of decentralization.

You have briefly explained the strategic business units (SBUs) in a detailed manner. By seeing all the above points, the only retail store I got in the mind is Kroger Co. It is a retail store which has many subsidiaries. SBUs are very crucial for any parental company. Moreover, Kroger also attracts its customer by conducting Krogerfeedback survey.In return to the participants who took part in the Kroger survey, Kroger offers the fuel points, gift cards, rewards, etc. for their happiness. Hence, in this way, the Kroger maintains its SBUs and customers happy.
