Entrepreneurial Drivers and Dynamic Capabilities in Situations of Encompassing Change
2005 (English)In: A focused Issue on Understanding Growth: Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Diversification / [ed] Ron Sanchez, Aime Heene, Amsterdam: Elsevier, 2005, 3-29 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
We lack knowledge concerning the importance of entrepreneurial actors in development of dynamic capabilities. Entrepreneurial drives lead the entrepreneur and his/her firm into different strategies to cope with encompassing change and in building different sets of capabilities. A case study of four high-tech firms suggests that entrepreneurial actions determined by entrepreneurial drives (technological, market, business, and development) lead to the creation of new modules and to combinations of external and internal capabilities that increase the balance between contradicting demands. This suggests that a combination of different drives is important, as is the formation of entrepreneurial roles (creators, expanders, and builders).
