Agency theory holds that company owners or shareholders hire executives, managers and employees to serve their interests. In essence, owners delegate a certain amount of control and direction over their company's operation to agents whose employment is dedicated to their company's success, which is often defined as maximizing profits. Agency theory has proved to be useful as a theoretical and empirical lens for examining a wide range of issues in business to business markets. In this chapter, we attempt to explore the current and potential (future) applications of agency theory in business markets.
