This paper argues that it is important to distinguish between related and unrelated international geographic diversification when measuring impact of diversification on performance. It then extends the Jacquemin-Berry entropy measure to propose a comprehensive measure of global diversification that comprises related and unrelated product diversification, and related and unrelated international geographic diversification. It suggests a classification of firms based on diversification strategies and proposes hypotheses for future research.
