Abstract

The corporate size represents a strategic variable of the corporate behavior that has to be kept under control. Otherwise, it could give rise serious inefficiencies that can engrave heavily on the long-term economic equilibrium. In effect, the problem of the dimensional choice can never be considered definitively solved. Frequently, when the firm enter into the working phase, the scheduling that deals with the size reveals itself wrong, with all the consequences easily imaginable. Nevertheless, even when this decision has been correctly formulate during the pre-startup phase, new needs or various problems that require a dimensional adaptation could arise. In concrete terms, this adaptation could be realized through internal and external ways, both with advantages and disadvantages, that require meticulous analysis. For this reason we always have to act carefully, and with far-sightedness, in order to avoid the necessity to recourse to corrective interventions – that could reveals themselves difficult and expensive – in a limited span of time. Therefore, the dimensional parameters are key concepts to guide strategic decisions and should be constantly monitored. Although, even if necessary, these parameters are difficult to be determined. This paper aims at providing some analytical considerations on these critical concepts.
