Hypotheses and research model

  • Jens Hutzschenreuter


This study aims at answering four distinct research questions. Firstly, this study seeks to provide evidence for the beneficial effect of indirect controls on company performance. The hypotheses for all four control forms are thus developed in Chapter 4.1. Secondly, the assumed consequences of control combinations are described in Chapter 4.2. Thirdly, the hypotheses for research questions two and four, which concern age (research question two) and other life cycle oriented moderators (research question four) are discussed in Chapter 4.3. Finally, Chapter 4.4 combines the hypotheses and presents the overall research model.
