This paper studies the impact of organizational slack on the performance of material production and processing firms by using empirical analysis based on the data get from 54 firms in Henan Province by questionnaire. The result shows that organizational slack is positively related to the performance of material production and processing firms. The analysis also finds that there is the inverted U-shaped relationship between organizational slack and performance, but this relationship is not significant. Overall, results highlight the importance of additional research into intervening factors impacting the slack–performance relationship.
