Can winners be losers? The case of the Deming Prize for quality and performance among large Japanese manufacturing firms

Iaquinto, Anthony L.

Prior research argues a positive relationship exists between winning a quality award and firm performance. We presented an alternative perspective that performance may be negatively associated with winning. Results support the latter argument for the vast majority of the firms in our sample. However, results also suggest the relationship between winning and performance may be contingent on other variables.
