ABSTRACT
A contingency based model shows that firm performance for technology services organizations (TSOs) is positively related with entrepreneurial autonomy and technology intensity; and negatively related with environmental hostility. Further, firm size is found to have a moderating effect on the relationship of TSO performance with entrepreneurial autonomy, technology intensity and environmental hostility. Post-hoc analysis reveals that entrepreneurial autonomy, technology intensity and environmental hostility have significant relationships with performance in large TSOs; but in small TSOs, only technology intensity is significantly related to performance. Interestingly, technology intensity is a mediator in the relationship between entrepreneurial autonomy and performance in small TSOs.
