Article
In this paper, we draw on a performativity perspective to conceptualize entrepreneurial opportunities as possibilities constituted through discursive-material practices within a field. Based on an analysis of a longitudinal qualitative case study in the field of South African energy from 2007 to 2018 we develop a process model of how possibilities...
Conference Paper

Research shows that information systems security operates between two main distinct functioning modes, either prevention before a security incident occurs, or response which follows from an incident, usually external to the organisation. In this paper, we argue that this shift between prevention and response modes also happens due to inherent inter...
