This study reports exploratory empirical research regarding divestment decision-making, focusing especially on the role of business unit size in such decisions. Data from two related studies suggest that unit size has an important impact on divestment decision-making. Corporate strategists should devote more attention to the size variable when considering acquisitions, resource allocations, and managerial career paths.
