A wide variety of factors influence the quality of strategic decisions. This research considers one such influence, the Strategic Decision Making process. It explores whether previous theoretical propositions hold in quite different organisations in a very different business environment, namely a University in England. The research examines how a strategic problem was addressed. Interviews with the Top Management Team, supported by documentary evidence, are content analysed for the relevance of the propositions in this new environment. Two cases of decision making, relating to the same problem, in a single university suggest that the propositions are indeed relevant.

Archival interviews with 76 popular musicians were content-analyzed for statements about motivation, individuation and attributions of success and failure. Creativity was judged separately by consensual ratings from experts. Results show that although no differences were found in expressions of intrinsic motivation, creative musicians were less motivated to receive extrinsic rewards than uncreative musicians. Creative musicians were also more likely to individuate their products from the products of their peers, but were no more likely to personally individuate themselves. Finally, creative musicians were more likely to display positive illusion tendencies, attributing successes internally and failures to external causes.

Several studies found significant differences between the US American and European management research. Since these studies included only journals published in English language, particularities of German management research are not taken into consideration. In this study a comparative content analysis of all articles in the leading four US American, European (in English language) and German management journals published in 2000 was conducted. The following items were analyzed: research patterns (theoretical versus empirical; and if empirical, nomothetic or idiographic), purpose and data collection methods, and collaborative behavior of authors (international cooperation, national and cooperation within the same university) in the respective geographic areas. On all these variables, clear differences were found.

In this paper we present the results of an exploratory study about specific organizative characteristics that innovative companies possess. This study is part of a wider research work about the innovative behavior of firms (Camelo et al, 2001). The case study about four organizations included in the Andalusian Innovations Network reveals that certain factors do exist which behave as the literature supposes they should, along with other factors which are also worthy of consideration given that they contribute to improving our understanding of innovation within a company.

This paper is based on the assumption that a synthesis of the old Chandlerian structure follows strategy notion and the literature on innovation and learning. The main research question was as follows: To what extent does the level of strategic activity in innovation affect the external and internal structuring directly and to what extent is this effect mediated by learning and innovation processes?

This paper argues that executives and managers need to reevaluate and to reengineer their performance measurement system to make it more pertinent so that it would serve as an effective trigger as well as a critical piloting and control mechanism for effecting strategic management intervention.

The objective of the present paper is to propose an integrative and explanatory model of the high-growth companies (gazelles). The present paper analyses high-growth firms (also known as gazelles) in the light of three different theoretical focus: (1) model about firm growth; (2) literature about strategic change and renewal; and (3) entrepreneurship field. An integrative model of radical growth of gazelle firms is proposed. This model combines the contributions of each stream of literature and allows the identification of a wide range of relationships among the main variables.
