Abstract: The literature is replete with tests of the competitive strategy-performance relationship.However, most published work has been in the developed world, most notably the United States. This paper compares and contrasts the nature of competitive strategy and its link to firm performance in Turkey and the United States. Turkish respondents reported higher levels of both innovation and cost-oriented strategies than did their American counterparts, but both strategies were positively associated with performance satisfaction in both nations, reinforcing previous research in both Turkey and the United States.
