Theoretical model and hypotheses

  • Wolfgang Kaltenbrunn


In line with strategy process research, this thesis uses a theoretical model which employs a process logic to explain the causal relationships between observed inputs (independent variables; i.e., the contextually induced degree of centralization of leadership, the degree of decision-making rationality, and the degree of organizational member involvement each within the division where the respective initiative has been developed) and with respect to the strategy content or outcomes (dependent variable; i.e., strategic initiative performance) in a variance theory (Van de Ven, 1992). According to our model, these relationships are moderated by the degree of exploration inherent in the initiative's task (i.e., moderating variable).
