Impact of Ownership Type on Environment-Strategy Linkage and Performance: Evidence from a Transitional Economy

22 Pages Posted: 13 Aug 2003

Abstract

In this study I contend that the ownership type has a significant impact on the environment-strategy configurations amongst different firms in a transitional economy. The influence of ownership type on the environment-strategy configuration is tested, based on an analysis of surveys of 201 managers from four types of companies in China: state-owned, collectively-owned, privately-owned, and foreign joint ventures. Results support the central notion that each ownership type exhibits a distinct environment-strategy configuration, which in turn has important performance implications for the firms.
