Abstract [en]

Both the strategic management and entrepreneurship literatures provide limited guidance on strategic diagnosis in the commercialization stage when the information processing structures of ventures are gestating. This study focuses on how founders engage in strategic diagnosis in lower development stages of venture information processing structures. A procedure using archival sales data from 90 entrepreneurs who founded their firms in 2012, serves to assess sales achievement in the first three years of the venture. Using logistic regression with robust standard errors for the analysis, this study shows that more developed information processing structures increase the likelihood of realizing sales. Labeling strategic challenges as controllable instead of uncontrollable or as lower positive-gain increases the likelihood of sales after founding.

2. Influence of subjective interpretation, causation, and effectuation on initial venture sale
Open this publication in new window or tab >>Influence of subjective interpretation, causation, and effectuation on initial venture sale
2016 (English)In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, Vol. 69, no 11, p. 4815-4819Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This study investigates the influence of subjective interpretations of strategy-relevant cues, specifically, perceived control/uncontrol and perceived gain/loss, on the relationship between causation or effectuation approach and the likelihood of initial venture sales. The results support the greater likelihood of initial sales when the entrepreneur increasingly relies on causation (albeit at low to medium levels) and has a greater perception of control. Similarly, perceived gains (instead of losses) strengthen the positive relationship between effectuation and initial sales. These results extend previous research on influence of the perceptions of control/uncontrol and gain/loss by supporting the influence of such subjective interpretations for strategic decision making. Furthermore, this study responds to recent calls for research on the different interpretations of the same environmental conditions and the resulting consequences for entrepreneurs.

3. A Systematic Literature Review of Entrepreneurial Opportunity Recognition: Insights on Influencing Factors

2016 (English)In: The International Entrepreneurship and Management Journal, ISSN 1554-7191, E-ISSN 1555-1938, Vol. 12, no 2, p. 309-350Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

In the last three decades, research studies investigating how individuals recognize entrepreneurial opportunities have advanced rapidly and have become a key topic in the modern entrepreneurship literature. To advance this important concern further, we present a systematic literature review of the entrepreneurial opportunity research field and its status. Contrary to conventional wisdom, this research suggests that the field is fragmented and empirically underdeveloped. A comprehensive literature analysis shows that only a handful of authors have contributed specifically to developing dialogues related to opportunity recognition and that the topic is considered primarily as an ancillary issue by many authors and academic journals. Based on analyzing 180 articles, we classify existing contributions into six influential factors: prior knowledge, social capital, cognition/personality traits, environmental conditions, alertness, and systematic search. Moreover, by developing a framework, we communicate critical insights regarding the opportunity recognition process. The contribution of individual articles to the proposed factors is presented in a research synthesis table. We conclude by presenting several directions for future research related to opportunity recognition.

5. Technological Advancement through Imitation by Industry Incumbents in Strategic Alliances

2015 (English)In: Innovation and Entrepreneurship in the Global Economy: Knowledge, Technology and Internationalization / [ed] Charlie Karlsson, Urban Gråsjö and Sofia Wixe, Cheltenham: Edward Elgar Publishing, 2015, p. 65-88Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Contrary to the conventional wisdom, this study demonstrates that technological laggards and not industry front-runners are most likely to experience high rates of technological advancement in strategic alliances. We further suggest that imitation and not innovation is the primary source of such advancement based on the fact that technological progress by laggards is most visible in industries that lack strong appropriability regimes. Finally, we present empirical evidence suggesting that lagging established corporations prefer to imitate from startups and not from fellow-incumbents. These results are derived from a careful analysis of a longitudinal sample of over 150 incumbents with varying degree of technological prowess who engage in partnerships with both startups and fellow-incumbents across a wide representation of industries. Our paper contributes to technological innovation, strategic alliance, entrepreneurship, and imitation literatures and provides non-trivial implications for startups.
