Powell, Thomas, Lovallo, Dan and Caringal, Carmina (2006) Causal Ambiguity and Management Perception. Academy of Management Review, 31 (1). pp. 175-196.
We integrate and extend research on causal ambiguity, indicating the principal causal paths from ambiguity to performance and discussing the connections between empirical findings and resource-based expectations. We then develop the linkage between causal ambiguity and management perception. Drawing on experimental and field research, we give testable propositions linking ambiguity, perception, and firm performance; integrate this research with studies of causal ambiguity; and suggest directions for future causal ambiguity research.
