Tradeoffs in Firm Culture? Nope, You Can Have It All

Co-authors: Don Sull, Lucy Hu and Hyo Kang

This paper uses new survey data with many firms and many respondents per firm to ask if we observe many of the trade-offs talked about in the Strategy literature. We find the contrary – firms that are better at one aspect of culture are, on average, better in other areas as well. This work bolsters the findings of Bloom and coauthors that a general management score can capture many of the dimensions of a firm that Strategy scholars care about.
