Possible Applications of Survival Analysis in Franchising Research
Abstract:Time is an important variable for retailers. The concepts of survival and duration, linked to this time variable, can be very interesting in franchising research. For instance, what are the determinants of the survival of a network or a store? Which elements decrease the period before franchising or internationalising a network? There is a well adapted but little-exploited methodology in this research area: survival analysis. Consequently, this methodological paper presents in detail survival analysis methodology before giving relevant examples of applications in the franchising field. Managerial implications of these kinds of research are given before the conclusion.
