Managerial Discretion and Performance in China: Towards by Hagen Wülferth

By Hagen Wülferth

​The theoretical and empirical literature thus far has fallen in need of achieving a consensus to whether granting extra managerial discretion to managers has a tendency to reinforce, now not adjust or reduce organizational functionality (the discretion puzzle). This publication goals to construct a bridge among those contradictory effects via synthesising principal-agent concept, stewardship thought, and managerial discretion idea right into a new empirically-validated version. utilizing a consultant pattern of 'double-blind' interviews with managers of 467 corporations in China and making use of partial least squares direction modelling (PLS), the research identifies a possible reason for the discretion puzzle: the failure of the extant literature to account for granularity within the method that managers use their discretion. This generates far-reaching implications for theoretical and empirical learn in addition to functional innovations for dealing with managers in multinationals and chinese language businesses.
