    ABSTRACT: Significant evidence has accumulated describing the importance of expertize. As this knowledge is extended, it is critical to understand when expertize matters and how. We unpack expertize in entrepreneurial decision making by presenting 412 founder/entrepreneur subjects with a unique tool involving four scenarios so we can measure an element of theoretical relevance to expertize in the entrepreneurial domain, efficacy at applying control and prediction strategies to situations which vary in environmental predictability and controllability. Results show that entrepreneurial expertize yields significant decision-making improvements in the situational use of control strategies - those strategies conceptually associated with uncertain new ventures, products and markets.
