A method for short-term profit analysis
The focus of this paper is a description of a methodology for identifying corporate strategies which explain short-term profit performance. The methodology is illustrated through its application to the Swedish textile and clothmaking industry. There are three important features of the methodology: (1) A conceptual framework of the firm which cuts across the traditional fields of management. (2) Concepts derived from the framework are linked to operationalized variables on the basis of their empirical patternings. (3) A quasi-experimental design is used in order to provide causal inferences concerning short-term profit performance.
