Abstract

Efficiency driven operations are essential to improving firm performance. However, they potentially increase firm vulnerability. Similarly, complex operations, arising from increased globalization and product diversification, also improve performance while increasing vulnerability. Through response surface analysis, this study quantifies the non-linear effects of these two factors on firm performance.
