Jörg Sydow, Georg Schreyögg
Palgrave Macmillan, Jan 11, 2013 - Business & Economics - 266 pages
Management and organization research has rediscovered individual agency, innovation and entrepreneurship. As such, there is a risk of overlooking the power of self-reinforcing processes in and among organizations. This volume redirects attention to these processes, including: escalating commitment, organizational imprinting and path dependence.
