Timescape of Corporate Entrepreneurship
The increased practitioner and academic attention to entrepreneurship's potential to renew organizations is accompanied by searching for solid theoretical frameworks and managerially useful prescriptions. Nowadays, there is still a need for work that is able to contribute to the advancement of entrepreneurship theory. According to Davidsson, Low and Wright there seems to be growing consensus among influential scholars in the field that entrepreneur-ship research must become more theory-driven "[...] that avoids unstated assumptions". Moreover, it is arguable that future research should consider cognitive and behavioral factors, relating to entrepreneurs in a variety of settings, the effect on environmental factors assessing entrepreneurship outcomes and taking more multi-level approach time frame and causality issues. The argument that strong entrepreneurship enhances organization's reliable effectiveness is the intuitively powerful idea and question yet to be answered with a wide array of theoretical interests and methodological tools. We believe that considerable progress would be made if methodological and theoretical innovations have been introduced. It seems that there is an excellent opportunity to bring insights from strategic management and organizations literature studies to the entrepreneurship field. (fragment of text)
