Who is the Real IT Manager?

The proliferation of this metric is driven from the often times misalignment with IT to Finance. Many organizations place the IT roles under the finance umbrella, and decisions are made based on cost vs. based on need.
Heck even us our IT Managers report the IT Directors, the IT Directors report to the CIO, the CIO reports to the CFO for some odd reason..
That isn't SO bad as long as the CFO isn't making the technical decisions instead of the CIO or someone else under the CIO. That the CFO oversees the CIO isn't generally ideal, but can work fine if both know how to work properly.

I must be lucky...I'm not micro managed and routinely asked for advice on how we can improve processes etc.
This is my situation. Our management doesn't want to be bothered with the decision making, so they rely on me to. Not S.O.P., but I love it.
Wherever I've worked decisions have always been made collectively amongst various stakeholders.
Often involving politics, diplomacy, compromise and ego-stroking.
