Scholars in management increasingly agree that related diversifiers outperform single-business firms and unrelated diversifiers. This can be attributed theoretically to a trade-off between generating economies of scope and avoiding diseconomies of scope, and it has spawned a rich discussion on the factors driving the realized gains from resource sharing. With his dissertation, Pascal contributes to this conversation by exploring how resource sharing between activities across (1) businesses and (2) geographical locations affects the performance of diversified firms. More generally, he is interested in the mechanisms that link resource sharing, diversification, and firm performance.
