By Andreas Kirschkamp, Prof. Dr. Utz Schäffer

Organizations have to determine dangers and possibilities of environmental alterations with the intention to adapt to or in all likelihood even to persuade them. Early caution which contains scanning and interpretation performs a tremendous function during this method. while the conventional contingency procedure considers early caution as part of the organizational constitution, the prolonged contingency thought assumes the extra effect of an individual’s character on early caution.

Andreas Kirschkamp empirically analyses the early caution habit of leader government officials in German medium-sized businesses. First, he provides the layout variables of early caution, then the influencing contingency variables. at the foundation of the scholarly examine on mental and contingency conception, the writer deduces hypotheses and checks them. the implications convey that early caution habit is not just encouraged through conventional contingency variables but in addition by way of own attitudes. as a result, the writer proposes combining the prolonged contingency thought with the conventional contingency theory.
