Ordinal Time Series Analysis: Methodology and Applications in Management Strategy and Policy

Synopsis

This book offers a comprehensive introduction to the methodology and applications of ordinal time series analysis. Particularly useful for managers who seek a reliable and accessible means of analyzing the strategic performance of firms, products, industries, or political entities, the ordinal time series approach uses simple data, longitudinal analysis, and rank positions to produce reports that more accurately reflect the dynamics of competitive position, corporate performance, etc. than those generated by more traditional methods. The contributors explain how to use the methodology and how to collect the appropriate data, review the statistical procedures involved, and examine numerous real-world applications of ordinal time series analysis.
