Hatum, Andrés and Pettigrew, Andrew (2006) Determinants of Organizational Flexibility: A Study in an Emerging Economy. British Journal of Management, 17 (2). pp. 115-137.
This paper examines the processes of organizational adaptation and competitiveness of firms in an emerging economy. The study is set in the Argentinian context of the 1990s when a combination of economic and political change triggered a massive change in the competitive context of indigenous firms. Two highly flexible firms and two less-flexible firms are studied from the pharmaceutical and edible oil industries and longitudinal data are supplied to explore the determinants of organizational flexibility in those organizations.
