Grundlagen der Theorie der Firma: Methodologie der Firma


  • Frohwein, Torsten


Zentrales Erklärungsobjekt der Forschung zur Theorie der Firma im strategischen Management ist die Firma. Das strategische Management kennt nicht die eine Theorie der Firma. Hinter dem gemeinsamen Forschungsziel der Erklärung der Firma steht eine Reihe zum Teil recht heterogener Ansätze, deren Ursachen sich in verschiedenen problemorientierten Zugängen finden und sich letztlich in der Verschiedenheit von Erklärungsansätzen und spezifischen Erkenntnisinteressen ausdrücken. Im deduktiv-nomologischen Erklärungsschema hat der Pluralismus in der Theorie der Firma seine Ursache in der Verschiedenheit der zu erklärenden Ereignisse (Explananda), die begleitet sind von divergierenden Explanans in Form entsprechender Antecedens- und allgemeiner Gesetzessaussagen. Diese Pluralität in den Erklärungsansätzen ist jedoch mehr als Bereicherung denn als Einschränkung zu begreifen.
