By Andreas Kirschkamp, Prof. Dr. Utz Schäffer

Organizations have to establish dangers and probabilities of environmental alterations on the way to adapt to or almost certainly even to steer them. Early caution which includes scanning and interpretation performs a massive position during this method. while the conventional contingency process considers early caution as part of the organizational constitution, the prolonged contingency idea assumes the extra impression of an individual’s character on early caution.

Andreas Kirschkamp empirically analyses the early caution habit of leader govt officials in German medium-sized businesses. First, he offers the layout variables of early caution, then the influencing contingency variables. at the foundation of the scholarly learn on mental and contingency idea, the writer deduces hypotheses and exams them. the implications express that early caution habit is not just prompted via conventional contingency variables but in addition via own attitudes. hence, the writer proposes combining the prolonged contingency conception with the conventional contingency theory.

No reaction at any state of the firm is possible to prevent possible losses resulting from this threat. This analysis shows ANSOFF’s two key insights: the importance of detecting the signal early enough by scanning the environment of the organization 117 and of changing the state of the firm 118 . In the context of this work the first point is especially looked at.

This means that the threatened loss can be prevented by changing the state of the firm. This example also shows that the earlier a signal is detected, the longer is the time until an inevitable loss will occur. If a crash reaction is possible, for any state of the firm, t r is smaller than t l . Under this condition neither the time of detecting the signal nor the state of the firm is important. 2) In the second scenario 115 116 See Ansoff (1975), p. 27, Ansoff (1976), p. 141 and Ansoff (1981), p.
