The authors explore how entrepreneurs with limited resources legitimated (or failed to legitimate) a new organizational category in different jurisdictions in Canada despite severe resistance. The authors identify three meso-level domains of institutional action (public, administrative, and legal), where actors intervene to change their macro-institutional environment. The findings suggest that these domains mediate the relationship between micro-level agency and macro-level institutions. The au...

In this essay, we critique the usage of the term ‘institutional void’ to characterize non-Western contexts in organizational studies. We explore how ‘conceptual stretching’ of institutional voids –...

Abstract The wealthiest family business owners are recognized as economically powerful, but there is little theoretical underpinning to explain how their behavior differs from their counterparts. To increase our understanding of family firm owners we draw on literature to introduce the concept of the rentier which we contrast with the socioemotional wealth (SEW) perspective of ownership. We test contrasting predictions by examining the strategic behavior of the one percent wealthiest business ow...

Research Summary Behavioral theory examines how the intensity of underperformance influences firms' strategic decisions; yet, it largely fails to consider the effect of underperformance duration. Drawing on behavioral theory and organizational learning, we argue that the length of time that a firm has been underperforming contributes to shaping firms' innovative search patterns. We test our theory merging COMPUSTAT and NBER patent data for 1,610 high‐tech manufacturing companies between 1986 and...

Abstract While established firms can efficiently manage their resource portfolio, new ventures must construct resource boundaries by assembling resources. In doing so, new ventures are often pushed to utilize resources that are owned by other actors. These inter-organizational relationship strategies do not expand organizational boundaries, but rather create permeable boundaries. We theorize that boundary permeability confers greater access to resources, but limits control over them. Therefore, ...
