عنوان مقاله [English]
Based on management and particularly technology management literature, the success of a firm depends on the effective integration of its technology strategy in accordance with business and corporate-level strategies. The question is how this integration should be achieved. Based on the theory of strategic reference points (SRP), organizations can select reference points for integration and then integrate their elements and systems with them. However, to study several firms, the same reference points are needed. In this study, the control and focus of the firms are selected as strategic reference points and a hypothesis is raised that integrating technology and corporate strategies around these reference points can lead to higher performance. This hypothesis is tested in 78 defense-related firms, revealing that certain types of corporate and technology strategies integration are associated with higher performance.
