... Risk-taking is highly correlated with international open innovation. Since risk-taking and reactiveness tend to fall on a spectrum, there are specific correlations that stand out as particularly important Oliva et al., 2022). When discussing open innovation, a significant correlation has been shown between risk-taking and establishing external networks (Carvalho & Sugano, 2016). ...
... In this context, knowledge can be conceived as a resource that can be used to generate gains from the uncertainty facing companies (e.g., Battisti and Graziano, 2019;Buckley and Carter, 2002), for example for start-ups that by definition emerge and develop in uncertain and dynamic contexts. Startups play a central role in disrupting consolidated patterns in the market and generating innovations that create value for most of the society and destroy value for a lesser part (e.g., Oliva and Kotabe, 2019;Paoloni and Modaffari, 2021). In particular, in a highly uncertain global environment (Damilano et al., 2018), in which change is constant, the effectiveness of dispersed knowledge management represents a decisive factor for start-ups (Spender et al., 2017). ...

They may be seeking a return on investment for their monetary contributions, particularly if they believe that project initiators could deliver exceptional service quality and/or are in a position to develop new technological innovations and cutting-edge products (Del Giudice et al., 2021;. ...
... A firm's bid to go beyond societal expectations in meeting its environmental responsibilities shapes its environmental performance indicators It is not only about compliance with governmental regulations, however, but it also encompasses environmental effects that the operations of a firm cast (Dubey et al., 2015;Oliva et al., 2019). The agenda of a firm regarding environmental management highlights the extent of GI in a particular firm. ...
... In contrast to the conventional risk management approach that treats risks as independent factors and ignores the upside potential of risk (opportunity), ERM embraces a holistic approach of assessing and managing both risks and opportunities in an interdependent setting (Oliveira et al. 2019). Research on ERM ranges across diversified themes, such as conceptualization of ERM (Bromiley et al. 2015;Choi et al. 2016), ERM frameworks (Shad et al. 2019;Etges et al. 2019), ERM maturity assessment models (Farrell and Gallagher 2019;Oliva 2016), models used for operationalizing ERM (Segal 2011), and empirical studies on the impact of ERM on organizational performance (Federico Neto, Santos, and Oliva 2018;Florio and Leoni 2017), among others. The International Organization for Standardization risk management standard (ISO 31000) and Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) ERM framework (Anderson 2017) are commonly used in practice. ...
