Abstract

There is a great divide between the degree to which academic research accounts for the role of managerial discretion in firm performance and the weight given by the popular press and financial community to the importance of the management of an organization. In this paper we begin to bridge this gap by quantifying the way managerial beliefs influence the quality of firm performance in a turbulent environment based on e-business.

Keywords: Managerial Discretion, Turbulent Environments, Latent Class Modelling, E-Business
