From contention to mainstream: valuing and institutionalizing moral products
By Nadine Arnold and Birthe Soppe
The topic of conflicts and decision-making in entrepreneurial firms is one of many research threads that Centre for Entrepreneurship has extensively contributed into over the years. In this post, we would like to highlight several exciting papers that extend our understanding of conflicts in entrepreneurial teams and their consequences.
Centre for Entrepreneurship has a strong and diverse research agenda. One particularly exciting stream of scholarship is dedicated to boards* and top management teams (TMT).
Grounding their work in the ideas of a psychologist and linguist Lev Vygotsky, Leif Christian Lahn and Truls Erikson reconceptualize the development of entrepreneurial expertise as artefact-mediated activity and contrast it with other approaches to entrepreneurial education.
This new study by Bradley George, Truls Erikson, and Annaleena Parhankangas sheds light on the interaction between various types of conflict in entrepreneurial teams of venture-backed firms.
Why do some individual research scientists foster enterprising aspirations, while others don't? Building on institutional theory, human capital theory and the theory of self-efficacy Truls Erikson, Mirjam Knockaert, and Maw Der Foo explore how organizational and individual factors shape enterprising aspirations.
We are proud to feature a new paper "Vertical Coopetition and the Sales Growth of Young and Small Firms" by Christian Lechner, Birthe Soppe and Michael Dowling that was published in "Journal of Small Business Management".
Drawing on passion literature and identity theory, Annelore Huyghe, Mirjam Knockaert, and Martin Obschonka disentangle how organization members' "passion orchestra" is related to entrepreneurial intentions in the context of academia.
Saskia Crucke and Mirjam Knockaert have published a new article in Journal of Management Studies.
The Centre for Entrepreneurship is pleased to invite interested faculty, postdocs, and PhD students across campus and universities to join the workshop. The workshop is also open to master level students at the Centre for Entrepreneurship.
An article written by researchers affiliated with the Centre for Entrepreneurship (SFE) has been designated one of the best this year in international Entrepreneurial Team-research.
A recent study suggest that compositional task conflict has a significant positive effect on new venture performance whereas compositional procedural conflict has a significant negative effect.
