Abstract

This research operationally defined three top-level management priorities and made some suggestions about these priorities' relative levels of importance across three stages of organizational life cycles. Two different studies, a field study and a simulation, were conducted concurrently. The findings support some specific hypotheses about relationships between priorities and life-cycle stages.
