The current study extends research in the realm of strategy/structure fit and firm performance outcomes. In doing so, the impact of industry structure, as measured by industry concentration, on the relationship between fit and performance is examined. The results suggest that industry concentration moderates the relationship between fit and performance. Specifically, this study suggests that fit between a firm's strategy and structure is more important with regard to performance for firms operating in higher concentration industries. The practical and theoretical implications of these findings are discussed.
