Abstract

The relationship between diversification and organizational performance has been the subject of numerous studies over the years. However, strategy scholars have universally defined diversification using a narrow definition, namely corporate diversification is a function of the number of businesses. It can be argued that such a definition may be outdated given the impact of international market diversification on firm performance. Integrating these two views of corporate diversification, the present paper investigates diversification differences among U.S. and Korean firms using market- and product-based measures of diversification.
