From bust to boom : towards a strategic cognition perspective on Australian mining firms’ adaption
Kabanoff, Boris, Schaffner, Markus, & Bo, Song (2011) From bust to boom : towards a strategic cognition perspective on Australian mining firms’ adaption. In 25th Annual Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management Conference: The Future of Work and Organisations, 7 – 9 December 2011, Amora Hotel, Wellington, New Zealand.
While the role of executives’ cognition in organisations’ responses to change is a central topic in strategic cognition research, changes in firms’ environment are typically not measured directly but described either as an event (for example, new industry legislation) or represented by a time period (e.g. when a new technology impacted an industry). The Australian mining sector has witnessed a historically significant change in demand for its products and we begin by developing measures of changes in supply and demand for key commodities during the period 1992-2008. We identify sub-groups of firms based on their activities and commodity sector and examine the relation of these variables to executives’ cognition and to firms’ CapEx. We find industry, firm and cognitive variables are related to both strategic cognition and firms’ CapEx.
