AbstractThe paper analyses high-growth firms in Slovenia over two three-year periods: 2007–2010 and 2011–2014. The analysis has been carried out for four stylised facts on high-growth firms established in the literature: (1) growth-rate distributions are heavy-tailed; (2) different growth indicators select different high-growth firms; (3) a small share of high-growth firms generates a large share of jobs; and (4) high-growth firms are not more common in high-tech industries. The results find the...

Emphasizing the role of the organizational context and adopting a multilevel approach, we propose that the interplay between HR system configurations and relational climates has a cross-level effect on employee proactive behavior. Using a sample of 211 employees in 25 companies, we show that the laissez-faire context – featuring a combination of a weak compliance HR configuration and a strong market-pricing relational climate – is better suited for fostering employee proactive behavior than the ...

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to review the literature on the growth drivers of start-up firms from the process perspective. Increasing scholarly attention to the growth of start-up firms has led to a more sophisticated understanding of their drivers. However, the richness of the results is partly offset by both potential and real contradictions in the literature. Design/methodology/approach – In this paper, 233 studies on the growth of start-up firms are reviewed using a process-orient...

We aim to develop a meaningful single-source reference for management and organization scholars interested in using bibliometric methods for mapping research specialties. Such methods introduce a measure of objectivity into the evaluation of scientific literature and hold the potential to increase rigor and mitigate researcher bias in reviews of scientific literature by aggregating the opinions of multiple scholars working in the field. We introduce the bibliometric methods of citation analysis,...

Proactive behavior is seen as being anticipatory or future oriented, self-initiated, and about taking control to make things happen. Increased focus has been dedicated to proactivity especially with broader workplace changes. This is even more important nowadays with increased competition, and technological development which consequently leads to workplace flexibility and, instability. Proactivity was been associated with various outcomes going from higher levels of innovation, leadership effect...

We aim to develop a meaningful single source reference for (management) scholars interested in bibliometric methods. Bibliometric methods introduce a measure of objectivity into evaluation of scientific literature and have the potential to increase rigor and mitigate researcher bias in reviews of scientific literature. We reviewed 86 studies that used bibliometric methods in management and organization science published between 1993 and 2012. We found that co-citation analysis is the most used m...
