Research Summary Shocks, whether they derive from shifts in demand, supply, regulation, or innovation, can create the need for competitive repositioning by industry participants when they disrupt established sources of competitive advantage. Such situations can therefore create a canonical strategic problem: whether, where, and how to (re‐)position following an industry shock. In this paper, we explore the role of comparative adjustment costs in determining competitive advantage in dynamic envir...

Processes of strategic problem formulation are not only core to strategic decision making, but may be paramount. Indeed, one cannot even assess whether a situation is strategic until the problem has been formulated. To illustrate the importance of problem formulation, we present a case study, and after highlighting key features, explore several ways in which the case’s problem could be formulated. These alternative formulations highlight how strategic decision premises can dramatically affect de...

Basic science has long understood the process of testing and improving ideas. Although management scholars are interested in the antecedents to innovation and extoll famous experiments, the field has paid limited attention to the science of testing ideas. This symposium will discuss the competitive advantage gained through effective experimentation and how the ability to experiment and incentives to do so vary as a function of industry stage. This panel intends to discuss the role of experimenta...

A key finding in the literature on industry evolution and strategy is that knowledge “inherited” from the founder’s previous employer can be an important source of a new firm’s capabilities. We analyze the conditions under which knowledge that is useful for carrying out a key value chain activity is inherited, and explore the mechanism through which such an inheritance shapes an entrant’s strategies and, in the process, influences its performance. Evidence from the early U.S. auto industry indic...

This paper develops a model of relational contracting to help explain the prevalence of multiunit franchising; a phenomenon not fully understood in the literature. The model is used to derive a key prediction, which is that franchise systems with a greater propensity to engage in multiunit franchising will feature greater mutual cooperation between franchisor and franchisees. Evidence for this prediction is found in data on franchisee-franchisor litigation outcomes from a sample of franchise dis...

Adaptation between organizations is a fundamental problem in economic organization. While prior literature has largely focused on a dyadic view of adaptation, this study explores the influence of network governance on adaptation in multiparty collaborations. Drawing on organizational economics and economic sociology, we analyze adaptation between organizations in seven construction projects. Our study extends the literature on adaptation by identifying mechanisms through which network governance...
