The current manuscript reviews the literature associated with corporate strategy, and proposes a new approach of acceleration to measure momentum based on limited cycle theory. Thus, this research manuscript makes a contribution to extant thought by: 1) Defining momentum, 2) Discussing the nature of the relationship between momentum to its external environment, and company scale, 3) Ascertaining the momentum period, and 4) Proposing a four-cell model composed of momentum and company scale for judging a firm’s position. Additionally, the relationship between momentum and the impact of 2007-2008 financial crises is addressed. Based on the findings, the study limitations are identified and directions for further research are suggested.
