    Corporate venture capital: The role of governance factors2016In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, Vol. 69, no 11, p. 4744-4749Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Research on corporate venture capital (CVC) has consistently proven its importance for innovation and other strategic goals, yet information on the antecedents of CVC activity is scarce. This study provides theoretical arguments for the role of governance factors including board, CEO, and institutional ownership characteristics. Empirical evidence from an international sample of global CVC investments shows that factors such as having a board with multiple board mandates and institutional ownership are important factors for CVC activity. The conclusion is that the role of governance factors is important, and that subsequent research should not ignore this group of factors.

    How entrepreneurial SMEs compete through digital platforms: The roles of digital platform capability, network capability and ambidexterity2019In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, Vol. 100, p. 196-206Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Digitalization offers unprecedented opportunities for entrepreneurial small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). However, many entrepreneurial SMEs lack resources and capabilities or suffer from inertia, which hampers these opportunities. This study investigates how entrepreneurial SMEs can enhance performance through digital platforms. Specifically, the study examines the effect of digital platform capability and network capability on entrepreneurial SMEs’ financial performance. The study also examines how exploitation and exploration orientations moderate this relationship. Based on analysis of 230 entrepreneurial SMEs, the results indicate that digital platform capability has a positive indirect effect on entrepreneurial SMEs’ performance via network capability. The study also shows that exploitation and exploration orientations negatively and positively moderate this effect, respectively. The results suggest that entrepreneurial SMEs can enhance their performance through digital platform capability by aligning this capability with their orientation. These findings thereby enrich the literature on entrepreneurial SMEs and capabilities.

    Independent Distributors in Servitization: An Assessment of Key Internal and Ecosystem-related Problems2019In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, Vol. 104, p. 422-437Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Independent distributors (IDs), just as equipment manufacturers, have the potential to initiate a transition towards the provision of advanced services. However, the internal and ecosystem-related problems experienced by IDs during servitization differ due to their distinct organizational structure. The purpose of this study is therefore to uncover problems faced by servitizing IDs during transition towards provision of advanced services, a topic which is still scarcely covered in the literature. Using an abductive research approach, we identify three overarching groups of servitization problems specific to IDs: (1) conflicting interests of key stakeholders; (2) misalignment between distribution of managerial attention and servitization strategy; and (3) ineffective knowledge management within the ecosystem. To diagnose these problems, we propose a servitization-readiness decision tree that allows IDs to pinpoint hindering factors before embarking on a servitization journey. In so doing, we provide a starting point for identifying and describing criteria for assessing IDs' servitization readiness.

    Intention to visit and willingness to pay premium for ecotourism: The impact of attitude, materialism, and motivation2015In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, Vol. 68, no 9, p. 1854-1861Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Drawing from the theory of planned behavior and post-materialism assumptions, this study investigates and uncovers key antecedents of the intention to engage in ecotourism and to pay premium prices for the experience. A conceptual model incorporates environmental beliefs, attitudes toward ecotourism, behavioral indications, and willingness to pay premium (WTPP), in combination with materialism and general tourism motivation. Samples of Swedish and Taiwanese tourists empirically test the assumptions. Findings reveal attitudes and environmental beliefs connect positively with intention and WTPP; however, materialistic values exert a negative effect. The results also disclose diverging moderating effects on the environmental beliefs — attitude linkage, depending on the type of tourism motivation guiding the tourist. The research findings offer key insights on what drives consumer behavior in the context of ecotourism

    Mining in Green Technology Space: Perspectives of Multinational Mining Companies in Ghana2017In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This qualitative study explores the motivation for and trends in the adoption of green technology among multinational mining companies in Ghana. Multinational mining companies are noted as massive waste generators and energy consumers. As mining activities increase, the risk of greater environmental pollution and degradation also looms. However, a green mining technology across mine life cycles emphasizes the need for judicious utilization of resources and reduction in the effects of mining activities on communities. The adoption of green technology processes and procedures in mine work environments, constitute greater effort towards achieving a more sustainable and environmentally friendly mining practices. Drawing on a qualitative case study methodology, primary data were collected from selected officials of multinational mining companies in Ghana using in-depth interviews. The paper documents green technology awareness messages across various mines and explore the motivating factors for adoption of green mining technologies. The paper also provides an understanding of the fad of green technology adoptions among the multinational mines, which contributes to the reduction in the effects of mining operations on mine workers and local communities. The paper has practical implications on grounds of highlighting sustainable mining, a reduction in pollution and degradation of the environment, promoting awareness on safety and health among individual mine workers, and mining communities. The work recommends green technology adoption as a priority to leverage lean production across the multinational mines in Ghana.

    The nonlinear relationship between entrepreneurial orientation and sales growth: The moderating effects of slack resources and absorptive capacity2019In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, Vol. 100, p. 100-110Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The present study aims to advance the understanding of the complex and context-dependent relationship between entrepreneurial orientation (EO) and firm sales growth by investigating the linearity assumption and assessing the moderating role of financial slack resources and absorptive capacity in the mature industry context. Departing from some recent EO studies, the analysis based on a dataset of 86 companies operating in the food manufacturing industry suggests that EO has a nonlinear relationship with sales growth. Moreover, the results suggest that in companies with high levels of slack resources, an increase in EO from low to moderate levels accelerates sales growth; however, to capitalize on the sales growth potential of high EO, a high absorptive capacity is also required. Thus, the present study demonstrates a nonlinear effect of EO on sales growth, and particularly from moderate to high levels of EO, the positive moderating effects of absorptive capacity and slack resources.

    Digital servitization business models in ecosystems: A theory of the firm2019In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, Vol. 104, p. 380-392Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study extends the discussion of digital servitization business models by adopting the perspective of the theory of the firm. We use four theories of the firm (industrial organization, the resource-based view, organizational identity, and the transaction cost approach) to understand digital servitization business models of firms in the context of ecosystems. Digitalization transforms the business models of solution providers and shapes their firm boundary decisions as they develop digital solutions across organizational boundaries within ecosystems such as harbors, mines, and airports. Thus, digitalization not only affects individual firms' business models but also requires the alignment of the business models of other firms within the ecosystem. Hence, business models in digital servitization should be viewed from an ecosystem perspective. Based on a rigorous literature review, we provide suggestions for future research on digital servitization business models within ecosystems.

    Co-creating value from knowledge-intensive business services in manufacturing firms: The moderating role of relationship learning in supplier–customer interactions2016In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, Vol. 69, no 7, p. 2498-2506Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study seeks evidence for a positive moderating role of relationship learning in the relation between manufacturing firms' knowledge-intensive business services (KIBS), i.e., product-related services for developing customized solutions, and firms' customer-specific sales performance. Our findings from a survey of 91 supplier–customer relationships indicate that KIBS offerings do not generate performance per se; instead, supplier–customer relationships must be characterized by relationship learning to co-create value from the supplier's KIBS offerings. Our findings extend the literature on industrial service businesses by shedding a more nuanced light on the core activities that enable value co-creation and value appropriation in the KIBS context

    Exploring the microfoundations of servitization: How individual actions overcome organizational resistance2018In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, p. 328-336Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Servitization research has principally focused on the transition of organizational-level strategy, systems, capabilities, and processes for firms to be able to offer advanced services to their customers. Less is known of the underlying microfoundational dynamics of such transitions at the individual-level. Based on a multiple case study of six large multinational industrial firms engaged in servitization efforts, this paper identifies the tactics (i.e., evangelizing, bootlegging, leveraging, and collaborating) that individuals adopt to overcome organizational resistance to servitization. This study also presents the conditions that are necessary for individual employees to adopt these tactics. The present study provides theoretical and practical implications of the microfoundations of servitization, focusing attention on individual-level actions that affect the outcomes at the organizational-level to drive servitization efforts.

    New service development by manufacturing firms: Effects of customer participation under environmental contingencies2019In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, Vol. 104, p. 497-505Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    By bridging strategy, innovation, servitization, and new service development literatures, this study suggests that customer participation enhances the effectiveness of new service development strategies. The effects are particularly pronounced in the environments characterized by low competitive intensity and high complexity of customer needs. Empirical evidence is obtained from a sample of 226 large manufacturing firms with respondents representing service, functional, and general management. The results are the first to support the importance of customer participation in the new service development context. While largely consistent with the new product development research, they offer novel insights into the role of environmental contingencies in harnessing the input of customers in the new service development process for the benefit of the firm.

    When the fog dissipates: choice between value creation and value appropriation in a partner as a function of information asymmetry2018In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, Vol. 88, p. 498-504Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates preferences for strategic emphasis in large corporation–small firm relationships and explores how information asymmetry may moderate these preferences. Our findings suggest that information asymmetry plays a crucial role in the development of an equity partnership between large public corporations and small, privately owned, growth-oriented firms. We study 233 instances of equity partnering between large corporations and small firms to investigate the contingency effect of information asymmetry on small firms' choice of equity partner. Our results indicate that when information asymmetry between the partners is low, small firms choose partners with a strategic emphasis on value creation. Conversely, when information asymmetry is high, small firms tend to choose corporate partners that emphasize value appropriation. This finding suggests that information asymmetry makes small firms wary of entering into equity partnerships and makes them unwilling to partner with corporations that potentially have the most to offer in terms of technological expertise

    Marketing and supply chain coordination and intelligence quality: A product innovation performance perspective2019In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, Vol. 101, p. 597-606Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Based on a sample of 148 Swedish firms, this study investigates the complementary relationships between internal and external coordination and external intelligence quality to explain product innovation performance. The results show that, with increasing manufacturing-marketing coordination, higher market intelligence quality or higher supply chain intelligence quality are positively associated with product innovation performance. The complementary roles of internal and external coordination and intelligence quality have theoretical and practical implications.

    Orchestrating industrial ecosystem in circular economy: A two-stage transformation model for large manufacturing companies2019In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, Vol. 101, p. 715-725Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Making the transition to a circular economy is an important goal for society and individual companies, particularly in resource-intensive manufacturing industries. Yet the complexity and interdependencies of such an undertaking mean that no single company can achieve it alone and ecosystem-wide orchestration is necessary. Based on a qualitative study of six large manufacturing companies (ecosystem orchestrators) and their ecosystem partners, we develop a process model that describes the scarcely understood process of ecosystem transformation toward a circular economy paradigm. We provide evidence that ecosystem orchestrators achieve the transition toward a circular economy in two stages: 1) ecosystem readiness assessment and 2) ecosystem transformation. In each stage, specific and complementary mechanisms are deployed. The article elaborates on ecosystem transformation mechanisms and their purpose, use, and interdependencies in moving toward a circular economy paradigm.

    Influence of subjective interpretation, causation, and effectuation on initial venture sale2016In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, Vol. 69, no 11, p. 4815-4819Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    Strategic diagnosis of information processing structures and commercialization in new ventures2018In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, Vol. 85, p. 83-90Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    Network partner diversity, network capability, and sales growth in small firms2016In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, Vol. 69, no 6, p. 2113-2117Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Network partner diversity, which is the extent to which a firm possesses diverse network partners, could be beneficial to firms. Increased levels of network diversity, however, may result in declining sales growth. The study proposes that network capability can help manage the scope of diverse relationships effectively and by doing moderate inverted U-shaped relationship between network partner diversity and sales growth. Building on survey data and prospective five year sales growth data from archival sources, the study finds that an increased level of network diversity has a negative effect on sales growth, but network capability moderates the relationship.

    Transaction costs theory and coordinated safeguards investment in R&D offshoring2016In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, Vol. 69, no 5, p. 1823-1828Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In a multi-case study of R&D offshoring relationships in large manufacturing firms, this study develops an alternative view to that of transaction-cost theory, which argues that safeguard investments during the transition lead to higher transaction costs. This study outlines how fear of opportunism and the potential to violate agreements drives the need for complex safeguard devices. Results show that the sample firms benefit from high initial coordinated safeguard investments, because those investments reduce transactional costs overtime. More specifically, the study lists critical activities of such coordinated self-enforcing safeguard investments and calls for future attention to how firms manage transaction costs in R&D offshoring to secure long-term value.

    Task equivocality and process modularity in R&D offshore collaboration projects2018In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, Vol. 93, p. 12-22Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Task equivocality could be a key impediment in offshore collaboration projects. Process modularity, or the extent to which offshore collaboration tasks can be decoupled and re-sequenced with little loss of functionality in offshore collaboration, could help lower task equivocality. Process modularity could be further complemented by knowledge conversion cycles and offshoring collaboration competence to further lower task equivocality. We use data from 86 offshore research and development collaboration projects between two strategic business units of a large European firm and their partner firms in India. The results show that process modularity was not associated with task equivocality. However, with increasing process modularity, higher levels of knowledge conversion cycles or offshore collaboration competence were negatively associated with task equivocality. These preliminary findings extend our knowledge of task equivocality in the context of offshore collaboration projects.

    Servitization of global service network actors: A contingency framework for matching challenges and strategies in service transition2019In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, Vol. 104, p. 461-471Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Servitization is a rising trend across manufacturing companies, but it is not achievable without the corresponding transition of the manufacturers’ service network. Despite the key role of service network actors, their servitization pathways are not widely understood. Thus, the purpose of this paper is to understand how diverse service network actors approach servitization under varying conditions. Findings are derived from an exploratory case study of eight service network actors for a global construction equipment manufacturer. The analysis reveals that service network actors face major capability-(lack of service provision capabilities, lack of service provision vision) and market-related challenges (unfavorable local conditions, low customer service readiness) that hinder their transformation. The analysis also reveals four unique servitization strategies (service extension, service benchmarking, digitalization, customer co-creation) that service network actors implement. A contingency framework is proposed to explain which challenges can be matched with which servitization strategies to achieve service network servitization.

    Stretching strategic learning to the limit: The interaction between strategic planning and learning2016In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, Vol. 69, no 2, p. 653-663Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study sets out to analyze the potential performance benefits of the interaction between strategic planning and strategic learning processes. First, this study analyzes whether strategic learning positively moderates the relationship between strategic planning and firm performance. Second, extending the literature on the limitations of firm-level learning capabilities, the nonlinear interaction between strategic planning and learning is examined. Results from 182 small and medium-sized software firms, including pre- and post-performance measures, indicate that strategic learning positively moderates the relationship between strategic planning and performance. Furthermore, the study reveals that the moderating effect of strategic learning is nonlinear (represented by an inverted U-shape). Low to medium levels of learning offer an important mechanism to enhance the positive performance benefits derived from planning. However, at higher levels of learning, the interaction between learning and planning on performance becomes negative, suggesting that knowledge overload can expose the limitations of the learning process.

    Rushed and short on time: The negative effects of temporal planning and flexible pacing style on the entrepreneurial alertness–effectuation relationship2019In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, Vol. 101, p. 555-560Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We investigate the influence of entrepreneurs' temporal preferences on the alertness–effectuation association in the early opportunity creation process. Although temporal cognitions of planning and flexible pacing are generally beneficial in organizational settings, we ask whether they constrain effectuation efforts when there is increasing alertness. Using survey data from 92 entrepreneurs running Swedish ventures, we find that entrepreneurial alertness has a positive association with effectual decision making during opportunity creation. We find support for our predictions that temporal planning (the consideration of the temporal flow of task activities) and flexible pacing behavior (the adaptation of one's pace within social interactions) weaken the positive association between alertness and effectuation. We discuss the implications of our research for the literature on entrepreneurial alertness and effectuation and for the emerging literature on entrepreneurs' temporal preferences.

    Relational governance strategies for advanced service provision: Multiple paths to superior financial performance in servitization2019In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, Vol. 101, p. 906-915Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The ability of manufacturing companies to offer advanced services and achieve superior financial performance remains an open question in the servitization literature. One central question relates to how providers govern customer relationships to realize profits through servitization. This study addresses this question by unraveling the complex relations between advanced service provision, relational governance strategies, and the financial performance of manufacturing firms. Drawing on a dataset of 50 Swedish advanced service providers, this study uses a configurational comparative method—namely, fuzzy-set qualitative comparative analysis (fsQCA)—to identify the influence of configurations of governance conditions (i.e., service innovation, perceived switching costs, the attractiveness of alternatives, and explicit contracts) on firm performance. This study contributes through the identification of three alternative governance strategies that enable advanced service providers to benefit from service provision: 1) innovation governance strategy (high service innovation, low attractiveness of alternatives, and low use of explicit contracts); 2) relational governance strategy (high service innovation, high perceived switching costs, and low use of explicit contracts); and 3) market-based governance strategy (high service innovation, low perceived switching costs, high attractiveness of alternatives, and high use of explicit contracts). These results enrich the literature on servitization and advanced services by reflecting the need to apply diverse relational governance strategies. The results suggest multiple paths to superior financial performance.

    Capability configurations for advanced service offerings in manufacturing firms: Using fuzzy set qualitative comparative analysis2016In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, Vol. 69, no 11, p. 5330-5335Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The present study contributes to the servitization literature demonstrating capability configurations that lead to successful advanced service offerings. Drawing on a data set of 131 Swedish manufacturing firms, the present study utilizes a configurational comparative method, namely fuzzy-set qualitative comparative analysis (fsQCA), to identify influential capability configurations. This study identifies four capability configurations that enable advanced service offerings in manufacturing companies. The results highlight the importance of a configurational approach towards understanding service capabilities and suggest two key paths based upon service development capabilities and mass service customization capabilities that firms may follow in achieving advanced service offerings.

    Places in good graces: The role of emotional connections to a place on word-of-mouth2019In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The role of emotional connections to places has largely been studied with a focus on place visitors. However, while residents are considered integral to the place brand, their perspectives generally have been overlooked. This study aims to increase the understanding of the relationships between place image, self-congruity, place attachment, and positive word-of-mouth among residents and visitors of a place. A conceptual model is advanced from identity and attachment theories. Responses from 654 residents and visitors in two Swedish cities were collected through an online survey, and the conceptual model was tested across the two city samples using structural equation modelling. Findings indicate that affective place image is positively related to positive word-of-mouth and that this relationship is mediated by place attachment for both residents and visitors. The results further show that self-congruity acts as a mediator between affective place image and place attachment for visitors but not for residents.

    Effectuation or causation: An fsQCA analysis of entrepreneurial passion, risk perception, and self-efficacy2018In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, Vol. 89, p. 265-272Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper enriches the literature on entrepreneurial decision-making logic by investigating nascent entrepreneurs' use of effectuation and causation. The configurational effect of passion, entrepreneurial self-efficacy, and risk perception is tested for causal and effectual decision-making. The results, based on data gathered from 50 nascent entrepreneurs, show that, more than passion, entrepreneurial self-efficacy, and risk perception alone, it is their combination that leads to the use of a causal and an effectual logic. This fsQCA-based study thereby helps unravel some of the complexities behind entrepreneurs' choice of decision-making logic.

    Untangling intense engagement in entrepreneurship: Role overload and obsessive passion in early-stage entrepreneurs2018In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, Vol. 90, p. 59-66Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Drawing on theory related to identity-relevant role stressors, this study explores how a stressful context in the early stages of new venture creation influences entrepreneurs' inclination toward obsessive passion. Consistent with the hypotheses derived from the theory, analysis of data on early-stage entrepreneurs indicates that a context of stress linked to role overload prompts entrepreneurs to engage more intensely in entrepreneurial activity, thereby leading to greater obsessive passion. Furthermore, high levels of goal challenge and achieved progress enhance the effect of role overload, making it more motivationally incongruent and more motivationally relevant for the entrepreneur. This effect increases entrepreneurs' inclination toward obsessive passion.

    The need to touch: exploring the link between music involvement and tangibility preference2010In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, Vol. 63, no 9-10, p. 1088-1094Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Amid the increasing consumption of digital music and generally declining sales of recorded music, physical formats persist as the preferred means of storing and listening to music for many consumers. The purpose of this paper is to increase the understanding of the relationship between music involvement and preference for tangible music formats. To achieve this, we test a research model and perform a segmentation analysis based on music involvement. Findings indicate that high music involvement is positively correlated with subjective music knowledge, tangibility preference, and portable player use. Quite naturally, involvement increases music consumption in all formats, including digitized forms, but high involvement appears connected to a perception of tangible records as more valuable. The behavior of highly involved consumers suggests that digital music is not necessarily eradicating physical formats but possibly fulfilling different needs; for example, sampling and complementing vs. collecting and displaying.

    The role of inspiration in entrepreneurship: Theory and the future research agenda2019In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, Vol. 101, p. 548-554Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The role of entrepreneurial inspiration has largely been overlooked in the entrepreneurship literature. Recent findings in the psychology literature indicate that inspiration plays a key role in creative processes and may have significant transformative effects on cognition, affect, and behavior. The objective of this study is to define the construct, review the literature, and propose a theory for understanding the role of inspiration in entrepreneurship. We show that our theory can answer unresolved questions in entrepreneurship.

    Does network board capital matter?: a study of innovative performance in strategic SME networks2010In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, Vol. 63, no 3, p. 265-275Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines the effects of network board capital (i.e., human capital and relational capital) on total, radical and incremental network innovative performance. Results from a five-year longitudinal study of network boards in 53 strategic networks suggest that a network board's diversity, education level, and interlocking directorates with other such networks affect network innovative performance. The degree of board diversity and interlocking directorates primarily influence incremental innovation, whereas education level influences radical innovation. The study finds that a network board's diversity of expertise and education level are important for improving all components of innovative performance (total, radical and incremental) in smaller networks. Managerial implications of these findings are discussed.
