The study describes the core tenets (e.g., the necessity of constructing models for cases with relationship reversals to a significant main effect—cases occur whereby both high and low scores of an antecedent condition indicate high scores in an outcome condition; asymmetric model...

This study analyzes data from a survey of senior executives in 247 South and Central American firms. Questions measure strategy elements and success of the firm. Conventional business measures success using sales and return on investment. The model breaks strategies into two groups, organizational and ma...
