Specifically, the study tend to; ascertain the impact of information management on corporate performance of business organizations, to find out the extent to which organizational rigidity contributes to the high level of business mortality, to ascertain the extent to which environment turbulence contributes to the poor corporate performance. The study adopted evolution theory and from the reviewed literature, we discovered that business environment impacts negatively on the corporate performance of business organizations. The implication of the findings is that, given that Nigerian business environment is general hostile; the owners of business organization should adopt appropriate strategies that would enable them to manage environmental turbulence effectively and help minimize the negative effects of environment on their performance. Based on the findings, we conclude that the business environment impacts negatively on the corporate performance of business organizations.
