Session 13

The Problem of Performance in the Theory of the Firm:

Track M

Date: Tuesday, October 9, 2012


Time: 17:30 – 18:45


Room: Meeting Room 1.1

Session Chair:

  • Charles Williams, Bocconi University


Abstract: The model of shareholder primacy in corporations is losing its overwhelming dominance in the imagination of business scholars. But the field has not yet examined the profound implications of advances in our theory of the firm for the concept of organizational performance. In this panel, scholars working on issues of joint value creation across stakeholders will explain their approaches to firm performance and discuss differences in these approaches. The panel aims to further the discussion among business scholars of how we can approach the difficulties of defining and measuring performance as we study the success, failure, and transformation of organizations in a world of shared value creation.
