中文摘要

The purpose of this study is to investigate whether the form of governance moderates the relationship between asset specificity and performance. Another objective is to construct a tool that helps managers to make decisions about outsourcing. The study was carried out in a representative sample of hotels in Taiwan. An analysis was performed of 585 activities pertaining to the main hotel areas. A research model is developed that proposes different hypotheses to test from the perspectives of Transaction Cost Economics (TCE) and the Resource-Based View of the firm (RBV). Moreover, an asset specificity-performance matrix is developed, where the activities are classified by their level of asset specificity and performance. The results confirm that the form of governance moderates the relationship between asset specificity and performance. This study is the first one to provide a specificity-performance matrix for the hospitality sector that serves as a tool for making decisions about outsourcing an activity.
