Title: Entrepreneurial Leadership: An Empirical Study


  • Tiffany Bussey, Morehouse College
  • Kate Buell-Armstrong, University of Glasgow

Abstract: In a recent commentary, David Teece argues for what he called entrepreneurial managerial capitalism in order to establish and sustain superior financial performance (Teece, 2012). In dynamically competitive enterprises, according to Teece, there is a critical role for the entrepreneurial manager in both transforming the enterprise and shaping the ecosystem through strategic acts that neither stem from routines nor give rise to new routines. This UK study provides a different context to theory generated from a previous US study that illuminated leadership as a missing piece in the dynamic capabilities puzzle. Deeper understanding of the proposed theory of leadership styles and practices in influencing strategic change have helped to sharpen the focus on the elusive concept of entrepreneurial fitness and leadership capabilities appear to be microfoundations for the dynamic managerial capabilities construct.

Title: Industry Experience of Board and Diversity of Corporate Ventureing Portfolio


  • Shu-Jou Lin, National Taiwan Normal University

Abstract: The purpose of this study is to investigate whether and how board industry experiences influences diversity of corporate venturing portfolio. We distinguish three types of experience diversity (i.e., separation, variety and disparity) and examine their effects on diversity of corporate venturing portfolio. Our study build on the notion that interpersonal networks built from board members' current and prior industry affiliations shape a firm's corporate venturing portfolio.
