Building on labor market evaluations and legacy conservation motivation perspectives, we propose a mechanism to explain the relationship between CEO career horizons and breakthrough innovations. Using 10-year panel data from 681 U.S. firms, we find that firms that have a CEO with a short career horizon tend to produce fewer breakthrough innovations...
Article
This article addresses the theoretical limitations of social network theory as it applies to individual creativity.

To examine the effects of a network on a firm’s breakthrough innovation, we develop six configurations of strong and weak ties to explore a...

This study examines the psychological origins of social entrepreneurial behavior based on the motivated information processing theory. Our structural equation modeling analysis of 179 nascent social entrepreneurs...
Article
Research in entrepreneurship decision making assumes that entrepreneurs use a relatively distinct decision-making process when it comes to market entry. Building on a biased comparative-judgment-formation framework and egocentrism theory, this article theorizes a model of entrepreneurs’ egocentric market entry decisions.

Previous studies on M&A have paid little attention to the attributes of acquired firms. Thus, this paper suggests that distinctive knowledge of acquired firms has a huge impact on a...

However, a definition and measurement of IPD have not been developed adequately. Building on the customer perspective, this study defines IPD and develops its standard measurem...

Firms use their internal resources effectively and efficiently in order to achieve innovation, but not all types of resources trigger the same level of innovation. We provide a new insight to understand the relationship between slack resources and R&D strategy by suggesting a new typology for slack resources: tangible and intangible slack. Building...

The underwriter offers the shares to a group of institutional investors and any leftover shares are sold on the market on the first day of trading.
