This dissertation takes multiple stakeholders and multi-fold performance consequences into consideration. Components of strategic orientation toward stakeholders in the nonprofit performing arts are proposed. Given the diverse and sometimes conflicting stakeholder interests, this paper also examines the effect of organizational capabilities in aligning with stakeholder interests and adapting strategic behaviors. Respondents for this study were senior executives of nonprofit performing arts organizations in three metropolitan areas including the San Francisco Bay Area of California, the Portland neighborhoods of Oregon, and the Seattle metropolitan area of Washington. A conceptual framework was proposed to test a series of hypotheses. Regression analyses were used to investigate the relationships between strategic orientation toward different stakeholders and multiple dimensions of organizational performance, as well as moderating effects of organizational capabilities. Stakeholder salience and strategic orientations across different organizational life stages is also investigated.
