Matching resources with demand: a flawed strategy?
An organization’s survival depends largely on its capacity to withstand external “reorganizing” attempts. Little research, if any, has so far been undertaken examining the survival of an entire business sector where its constituents undergo an externally dictated change and as a result it runs a risk of a thorough “jolt” or even “demise”. The authors present empirical evidence that a business sector may be subjected to “unwanted” re-organizing by its “parent/controlling” entity, and may cease to exist, in its real essence, if its constituents are forced to undergo a change that will alter the very objectives upon which their existence rests.
