Abstract:In addition to the proposed institutional effects model, this thesis also proposes a testable model of the efficiency paradigm and an integrated model of both to compare the ability of each to explain these decisions. The integrated model considers complementary aspects operating in organizational decision making. Therefore, the integrated model is expected to yield a more comprehensive explanation than either of the theory-specific models. All three models were tested using data collected from a sample of business professionals involved in make-or-buy decisions via a survey developed for this research. The results of the data analysis support the institutional model.
