Topic: "The Relationship Between Ansoff’s Contingent Success Hypothesis, Location, and Profitability for Technology Firms in or Near Urban Centers Compared to Technology Firms in Non-Urban (Suburban) Areas"

Abstract:
The research model is designed to examine the relationship among the variables contained in the Strategic Success Hypothesis (Ansoff, 1990), location, and innovation quality as constructed in the model on enterprise performance (profitability) in urban technology firms ((...
ICTs)-Department of Commerce-Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA)) and suburban technology firms (ICTs).
Specifically, the research explores the relationships amongst elements of the Ansoff Contingent Success Paradigm (Ansoff, 1990), to determine if strategic behaviour is different for technology firms in urban areas (ICTs), compared to technology firms in suburban areas. In addition to the Ansoff model, it examines factors that facilitate innovation in those geographic areas, i.e. workforce availability and quality of life. It measures how strategic behaviour and innovation factors impact enterprise performance by location as defined by profitability.
