Article
This article analyzes retrenchment strategies that family businesses adopt during periods of crisis. From a socioemotional wealth perspective, we propose that the influence of family board members and family CEOs on retrenchment depends on survival risk. We collected empirical data from companies on the Spanish Stock Exchange (2008-2012). Our findi...
Article
In this study, we test the effects of retrenchment aggressiveness on turnaround performance. Using the downward spiral, threat-rigidity and survivor syndrome perspectives, we hypothesize the direct effects of the two dimensions of aggressiveness - time aggressiveness and volume aggressiveness - on turnaround performance. We also examine the moderat...
Article
In this work we test the general assumption in the turnaround literature that time is critical for firm survival, especially during the retrenchment stage. We study three time dimensions of change at this stage: timing, speed and rhythm. Drawing on the downward spiral and threat-rigidity perspectives, we posit that the positive impact these time di...
Article
Despite the assumed importance of environmental dynamism with respect to organizational decline, theory and evidence of its effect are lacking. Integrating work from firm survival and turnaround literature within a dynamic capabilities framework, we posit that dynamism positively moderates the relationship between firm retrenchment and performance....
Article
We analyze how knowledge, learning, and strategic intent shape export intensity during the period surrounding the initiation of export activities in small, independent firms. Our research is conducted on a sample of small firms started in Andalusia, a region characterized by a lower proportion of exporting firms. By examining the interplay among di...
Article
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to investigate the effect of predictors of growth (entrepreneurial orientation (EO) and environmental hostility) and growth itself on small-firm volatility. The objective is to find out: first, whether growth and volatility possess a similar nature; second, what are the predictors of small-firm volatility. De...
Article
Incubators are heterogeneous but there is a lack of understanding of the variety of innovation involved. We use four archetypes of incubator discussed in the literature (basic research, university, economic development and private incubator) and analyze their generation of different types of innovation (product, technological process and organizati...
Article
Jose Angel Medina, had previously been involved in many turnarounds; this one was different. Comprosa, a Spanish manufacturer of packaging films, had a long history of success but had recently fallen on tough times due to decisions made by the CEO in his attempt to find a buyer for the company coupled with the financial crises in Europe in 2008. Me...
Article
Relevant literature has discussed incubator versus nonincubator firm performance and the characteristics of different types of incubators. However, it has not considered assessing performance individually by archetype. We studied company performance in four archetypal incubators. Performance measures used fall into five categories drawn from litera...

This article attempts to examine the role of management capabilities and their relationship with the form of growth chosen by high-growth businesses using a resource based view perspective. The results of the analysis show that when selecting the type of strategy to achieve high growth, not all the capabilities of management are important. In order...
Article
The majority of the literature on high-growth firms focuses on two main aspects: growth factors and rates of growth, but little information exists on how SMEs grow. Past research has implicitly considered high-growth firms as a homogeneous category of businesses, however, in reality, they use different forms of growth: domestic and international ge...
Article
This work analyzes the influence of three characteristics of family firms (generational level, non-family involvement in management and the next generation's involvement in the business) on their entrepreneurial orientation and the role of environmental dynamism and hostility as moderator variables in that relationship. The empirical investigation...

The internationalisation process has been described as a process of learning under which a business increases its commitment abroad as the company acquires knowledge on new markets and on the nature of the process itself. The present work proposes a model that relates the possession of a base of knowledge originated in supra-organisational, organis...
Article
The present research aims to improve scholars’ understanding of the relationship between entrepreneurial orientation (EO) and the growth of family firms in two areas. The authors propose that the EO—growth relationship is contingent on different contextual variables—environmental dynamism and environmental hostility—and an internal variable—generat...
