Abstract

The aim of this research is to analyze the methodology used in the papers that deal with the relationship between strategy and business performance in the last decade. In this context; it is intended to determine the fields of study on which the papers focus, the research methods and data collection techniques used and the findings achieved, and to compare and contrast the findings obtained with the methods of research used. In this research, a qualitative research method was used and the data were acquired through literature review. The data acquired were put to content analysis and they were analyzed within the theoretical framework formed in accordance with the objectives of the research. The main restriction of the research is that the academic papers only in the data bases of Emerald and Sciencedirect were included in the research. Within this, 15 papers in both data bases mentioned were reviewed. The findings of the research indicate that the papers reviewed have been published in 10 different academic journals and they focus on 6 different fields. Furthermore, quantitative research methods were used in 11 of total 15 papers whereas qualitative research methods were used in 4 of them. Questionnaire technique was chosen to collect data in the papers in which quantitative research methods were used. On the other hand, while literature review was mainly preferred in the papers in which qualitative research methods were used, case method was used in one of them. The results of the research point out that the papers have similar findings although they have used different methods, and it has been found out that there is a positive relationship between strategy and business performance in the consequence of each paper.
