Building on the microfoundational human capital literature, we propose a new conceptual model of the emergence of firm-level human capital from individual-level human capital. Specifically, we intr...

The literature on strategic human capital has largely focused on the ability of firms to garner a resource-based competitive advantage through the management of human capital. A significant portion...

While scholars have long recognized the importance of strategic human capital (SHC) in the ability of firms to create and capture value, and the importance of corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities as mechanism to motivate human capital, only recently have scholars begun to rigorously investigate the intersection between CSR and SHC. This symposium brings together four papers towards that end, each based on a different methodological approach. Using a difference-in-differences approach...

The fundamental questions we address are whether firms with a higher initial forecasting ability are able to accurately revise the exit forecasts of their investments; and how co-investment partners and value-adding commitment with their investment influence the main effect. We explore these questions with novel and unique data collected via mixed research methods on venture capital firms’ forecasts of 114 portfolio companies. We find that venture capital firms that are better at making initial ...

Drawing on human capital theory, strategy scholars have emphasized firm-specific human capital as a source of sustained competitive advantage. In this study, we begin to unpack the micro-foundations of firm-specific human capital by theoretically and empirically exploring when employees perceive their skills to be firm-specific. We first develop theoretical arguments and hypotheses based on the extant strategy literature, which implicitly assumes information efficiency and unbiased perceptions o...

We contribute to the strategic human capital literature by examining the link between value creation, competitive advantage, and profit for the case of team production with human capital. This is done by integrating the classic analysis of team production by Alchian and Demsetz into the resource-based theory of competitive advantage, and extending this analysis to the contexts that most interest strategy scholars, namely, team production with human capital that can be heterogeneous across firms ...
