PhD Track Organizations and the Financial Community: A Study of Mutual Influence

Organizations are increasingly faced with the problem of pursuing diverging goals. On the one hand, organizations try to achieve long-term maximization of wealth, which often requires risky or ambiguous investments. On the other hand, they try to maintain good relations with shareholders and financial analysts, whose support is of utmost importance for the survival and well-being of the company.

Unfortunately, in the core of such goal lies the mutual assumption that good relation is achieved through demonstrating dedication to shareholders’ interests. Such is manifested through strong financial performance in the short-term and achieving quarterly targets even at the expense of economically viable opportunities. The aim of this PhD project is to investigate how organizations solve such conflicts with means of different symbolic and substantive tactics. It also tries to enhance current understanding by investigating boundary conditions to organizational responsiveness to pressure from the financial community. Effectiveness of some of the proposed strategic tactics is also considered
